# Sheila can ride her bicycle 6000 meters in 15 minutes. How far can she ride her bicycle in 2 minutes?

$800$ meters

#### Explanation:

We first find the speed of Sheila by the speed equation, which is:

$v = \frac{d}{t}$

• $d$ is the total distance traveled

• $t$ is the total time taken

And so, we get:

$v = \left(6000 \setminus \text{m")/(15 \ "min}\right)$

$= 400 \setminus \text{m/min}$

Now, we find the distance traveled in $2$ minutes by solving for distance in the speed equation, which becomes:

$d = v \cdot t$

Inputting our values, we get:

(400 \ "m")/(color(red)cancelcolor(black)"min")*2color(red)cancelcolor(black)"min"=800 \ "m"
