Answer:

The second car gets there quicker.

Explanation:

Mph stands for Miles per Hour and shows the SPEED.

MIles gives the DISTANCE that is travelled,

In each case you can use the values given to calculate the TIME taken for each of the journeys.

#"Time" = ("Distance")/("Speed")#

#100# miles at #60 # mph: Time # = 100/60 = 1 2/3# hours

#120# miles at #75# mph: Time #= 120/75 = 1 3/5# hours

#1 2/3# hours is #1# hour and #40# minutes

#1 3/5# hours is #1# hour and #36# minutes

The second car get to its destination quicker.
