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.

I 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

distance is basically how much you travel in a certain time. so you travel a distance of 3 miles in one minute.
anonymous
  • anonymous
so how many miles would you cover in x minutes?
anonymous
  • anonymous
That is what I am confused by the only thing I can come up with is 33 miles is 66 minutes
anonymous
  • anonymous
I am sorry 99 minutes
anonymous
  • anonymous
99 minutes? or miles?
anonymous
  • anonymous
99 miles in 33 minutes

okay good. so what is the relationship between M and x?
anonymous
  • anonymous
M=99 33mi

3 miles --> 1 minute M miles---> x minutes what is the relation between M and x?
anonymous

Ireally don't know

okay. 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.

  • anonymous
ok now I am really confused. S 3x=99 miles is that it
anonymous
  • anonymous
the formula is M = 3x the distance traveled in 33 minutes is M = 3 times 33 = 99 miles

I think I understand thanks

you 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.
