# Tameron is driving 540 miles to college. If he drives at an average rate of 45 miles per hour, how many hours will it take to get 3/4 of the way there?

9 hours

#### Explanation:

$\frac{3}{4} t h s$ of 540 miles = 405 miles.

$v = \text{distance"/"time}$ so a bit of algebra will tell you that

$\frac{\text{time" = "distance}}{v}$

So then $\text{time" = "distance"/v = (405 "miles")/(45 "miles"/"hr") = 9 "hrs}$

I hope this helps,
