**A car travels at 60 mph for 10 hours.Calculate the distance it travels.Step1: Step2:Step3:Step4:Step5:**

**Answer:**

distance equals rate multiplied by time

we do this already in our everyday lives if you drive anywhere.

driving 1mph or 1kmh literally means that if you maintain either 1km/h or 1mp/h that after one hour has past with you travelling at that speed that you will have travelled either 1km or 1 mile

d = 1(1)

distance equals the time (1 hour) multipled by the rate (1kmh or 1 mph) equals 1 km/mile

plug in the numbers you know

d = 60(10)

the distance equals 60mph multiplied by ten hours

d=600
