    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
