# If you are going 80 miles an hour, how long does it take you to go 40 miles?

We will solve this question by using the speed formula.

## Answer: It will take half an hour to go 40 miles.

Let's solve this question step by step.

**Explanation:**

Given:

Speed = 80 miles/h

Time has to be calculated for covering 40 miles.

Substitute the values in the speed formula,

Speed = Distance / Time

⇒ 80 = 40 / Time

⇒ Time = 40/80

⇒ Time = (1/2) hour or 30 minutes.

### Hence, it will take half an hour to go 40 miles.
