How do you solve for Mayra's speed if Mayra runs 3 and a quarter miles in one-half hour?
Speed (s) is calculated by dividing the distance (d) traveled by the time (t) it took to travel that distance. The equation is
What is Myra's speed?
d = 3-1/4 miles = 3.25mi
t = 1/2 hour = 0.5h
Myra's speed is 6.5mi/h.
