# A bicyclist travels the rate of 8 miles in an hour. If the bicyclist continues at this rate, how many miles can the bicyclist travel in five hours?

$40$ miles.
Since the speed of travel is $8 m p h$, if the rate remains unchanged, the bicyclist will travel $8 \times 5$ miles in $5$ hours.
$8 \times 5 = 40$
