# Question #28127

It would take 24 seconds to travel 5 miles.

Average speed = distance travelled/time taken

Or

$s = \frac{d}{t}$

So $t = \frac{d}{s}$

$t = \frac{5 \times 5280}{1100}$

$t = 24 s$

Note I have converted all distances into feet.

In your answer you worked out the speed in miles per second but that was not what the question was asking.

$T = \frac{L}{L . {T}^{- 1}}$

$T = T$
