# A housefly can fly about 6.4 feet per second. At this rate, how far can it fly in 25 seconds?

The housefly could fly 160 feet in 25 seconds.

#### Explanation:

We can write the formula for this as:

$d = \frac{6.4 f t}{\sec} \times t$

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

So, for 25 seconds:

$d = \frac{6.4 f t}{\sec} \times 25 \sec$

$d = \frac{6.4 f t}{\cancel{\sec}} \times 25 \cancel{\sec}$

$d = \left(6.4 f t\right) \times 25$

$d = 160 f t$
