# How do you write an expression for the distance the car traveled after t hours?

Dec 12, 2016

$d = r \cdot t$

#### Explanation:

distance is a factor of speed and time. Therefore if we let:

$d$ be the distance traveled.

$r$ be the rate of speed the car is traveling

$t$ be the time the car has been traveling.

Then, assuming the car is traveling at a constant rate of speed the equation would be:

$d = r \cdot t$
