Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You want to find speed, which is R in the formula. Think of it as a formulae triangle. dw:1442417984670:dw Block out R, because you want to find that. So the formula for speed is distance divided by time, or R equals D over T. 32 divided by 1.25 hours is 25.6 miles per hour. This formula gives only the average, so that's your answer.
