Answer:

The housefly could fly 160 feet in 25 seconds.

Explanation:

We can write the formula for this as:

#d = (6.4 ft)/(sec) xx t#

Where #d# is the distance traveled and #t# is the time.

So, for 25 seconds:

#d = (6.4 ft)/(sec) xx 25 sec#

#d = (6.4 ft)/(cancel(sec)) xx 25 cancel(sec)#

#d = (6.4 ft) xx 25#

#d = 160 ft#
