Answer:

#1 1/2# hours

Explanation:

Distance traveled is equal to speed multiplied by time:

#d=st#

Where #d# is distance traveled, #s# is the speed, and #t# is the time (here, it will be in hours, as we're using miles per hour).

Plugging in our distance and speed, we get:

#60=40t#

#t=60/40=6/4=3/2# hours, or #1 1/2# hours

Answer:

#90# minutes #("1.5 hrs")#

Explanation:

If you are travelling at #"40 mph"#, then it will take #30# minutes to go #20# miles and #60# minutes to go #40# miles. Thus, it will take #90# minutes to go #60# miles.

Alternatively:

#"Speed"("mph")= ("Distance"("miles"))/("time"("hours"))#

#40=60/(t)#

#t="1.5 hours"#
