You are going to run at a constant speed of 6.5 miles per hour for 30 minutes. You calculate the distance you will run. What mistake did you make in your calculation? [Use the formula S = dt.]
6.5 • 30 does not equal 195.
mi/hr • min does not equal mi. You must convert 30 minutes to hours.
d30min • 30 min does not equal d.
There are no mistakes. The solution is correct.
