# Speed = 80KPH, Time = 10 mins, Distance = ?

Driving at a speed of 80KPH for 10 mins. What is the distance travelled??

80kph = 80,000metres per hour

1 hour = 60 mins.

metres per minute is 80,000/60 = 1333.3333333

metres in 10 minutes is 1333.333 x 10 = 13,333.333metres

13,333.333 metres = 13.333 kilometres.

Distance is Equal to the Multiple of Speed/Rate and Time.

D=RT

80(10)=800.

Or 800 kph.

(Where did everyone else go with there math?)

If you can walk 80 blocks in an hour, how far can you walk in half an hour? in 2 hours?

10 minutes is 1/6 of an hour. Your answer is 1/6 of 80 kilometers, which is the distance you'd travel in an hour.

Speed [multiplied by] Time] = Distance

80 KPH [multiplied by] 10 minutes = Distance

Therefore;

Distance = 80 KPH [multiplied by] 10 minutes

Distance = 13 and 1/3 kilometers
