650 Million Miles / (365 Days/year * 24 Hr/ Day * 1000 Miles/Hr) = 74.2 Years

1000 mi / 1 hr = 650,000,000 mi / x hrs

1000x = 650,000,000

x = 650,000 hours

650,000 hrs * (1 day / 24 hrs) * (1 year / 365 days) =74.20

74 years

d = rt\

650,000,000 miles = (1000m)/h)(t)

(650,000,000 miles)/(h/1000 m) = t

650,000 hours = t

24hours /day * 365days/year = 8760 hours /year

650,000 hours/ 8760 hours/year = 650,000 * year/8760 hours = 74 years
