Dan needs to get to austin as fast as possible.The train leaves at 3:00 p.m. and can travel at a speed of 60 miles per hour. if Austin is 65 miles away,how long will it take dan to get there?
Since 60 miles per hour is the same as 1 mile per minute, and Austin is 65 miles away, it will take Dan 65 minutes to get there.
Therefore, he will arrive at 4:05 p.m.
If the train moves at an average speed of 60 mph, we can divide 65 by 60 to get the amount of hours he will spend on the train. So, 65 / 60 is 1 1/12. 1/12 of an hour is 5 minutes so Dan will spend 1 hour and 5 minutes on the train.
Alternatively, you could notice that 60 mph means that Dan travels 1 mile every minute, which means it will take Dan 65 minutes to travel 65 miles.
Short Answer: 65 minutes, or at 4:05 p.m.
