on the fastest speedways, some drivers reach average speed of 3 miles per minute. Write a formula that gives the number of miles M that such a driver would travel in x minutes. How far would this driver travel in 33 minutes?
The formula is M=___
The distance is ___ mi.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I get that I multiply but I think I am confused by the question. I got 66 miles but I guessnI am confused by the distance

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0distance is basically how much you travel in a certain time. so you travel a distance of 3 miles in one minute.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.03 miles > 1 minute M miles> x minutes what is the relation between M and x?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay. in one minute you travel (3 times 1) miles. in two minutes you travel (3 times 2) miles in three minutes you travel (3 times 3) miles in x minutes you travel (3 times x) miles. so number of miles (M) traveled in x minutes is 3x therefore M = 3x miles, where x is in minutes.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok now I am really confused. S 3x=99 miles is that it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the formula is M = 3x the distance traveled in 33 minutes is M = 3 times 33 = 99 miles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you are welcome. dont get confused by letters such as M and x and so on. It is painful to write you travel 3 times the number of minutes in that time. so we assign variables such as M and x to the distance and time and write it in mathematical form. it is much easier to write M =3x as long as you know what M and x stand for.
