# Find the distance driven, if you drive at 60 mph for 3 1/2 hours. Round to the nearest whole mile.

**Solution:**

The formula for finding distance traveled at a given speed is:

Distance = Speed × time taken to cover the given distance

In the given problem speed = 60 mph (miles per hour)

The time taken to cover the distance is 3.5 hours.

Hence the distance travelled = 60 × 3.5 = 210 miles

In other words, 210 miles of distance was covered in three and a half hours while driving at a speed of 60 miles per hour.

If the speed decreases to 50 miles per hour then the distance of 210 miles can be covered in :

Time Taken = 210/50 = 4.2 hours

## Find the distance driven, if you drive at 60 mph for 3 1/2 hours. Round to the nearest whole mile.

**Summary:**

If you drive at 60 mph for 3 1/2 hours the distance covered is 210 miles.
