Ted drove at $80.33 m p h$ (around $80 m p h$).

#### Explanation:

To find Ted's speed, we need to determine the number of miles per hour ($m p h$) that he drove.

Since he drove $482$ miles in $6$ hours, the number of miles ($x$) he drove in one hour can be expressed by the equation:

$x = \frac{482}{6}$

$x = 80.33$
