## anonymous one year ago At what rate is a car traveling, if it goes 157.5 miles in 2.5 hours?

1. anonymous

Distance = Rate * Time In this case: Distance = 157.5 Time = 2.5 hours Substituting for the formula: 157.5 = 2.5r Divide both sides by 2.5 to find the rate: r = 63

$rate = \frac{ distance }{ time }$ $r = \frac{ 157.5 }{ 2.5 }$ $r = 157.5/2.5 = 63$ $r = 63$ $So~the~car~is~traveling~at~a~rate~or~speed~of~63~mph$
