distance = speed x time, so all you need to do is plug in the numbers for the distance and time of the first trip and solve for speed (by dividing distance by time). The same for the second trip.

so the equation looks like 100=x(10)?

Yes: 100 miles = speed * 10 hours \[\frac{ 100 miles }{ 10 hours } = speed\] 100/10 = 10, so 10 miles per hour.
