Tina lives 30 miles away from her work, and she normally drives at 45 miles per hour. If she wants to get to work 15 minutes earlier, how fast should she drive to work, in miles per hour?

30 miles / 45 m/hr = 2/3 hr = 40 minutes

15 minutes earlier would be 25 minutes to get there ( 5/12 hr)

30 miles / x m/hr = 5/12 hr

x = 30 * 12/5 = 72 m/hr

Chris got 60 mph: https://web2.0calc.com/questions/3-questions-on-algebra

It takes Tina 30miles / 45mph = 2/3 of an hour to get to work = 40 minutes

So......10 minutes earlier is 30 minutes.....so........to travel 30 miles in 30 minutes....she must travel at 1 mile per minute = 60 mph "
