# If you drive at 35 mph for 4 hours how far will you go?

May 10, 2018

x = 140 miles

#### Explanation:

This can be expressed as a proportion:

$\frac{35}{1}$ = $\frac{x}{4}$, where 35 and x represent the number of miles while 1 and 4 represent the number of hours. Cross-multiply to solve.

x = $35 \cdot 4$

x = 140 miles
