Math CentralQuandaries & Queries


Question from jennifer, a parent:

If you are traveling at 1 mile per minute how fast would you need to be going

Well, that is about as fast as a car on a highway, Jennifer.

At 1 mile per minute, how many miles could you go in 60 minutes? That's the same distance as you could go in an hour, because 60 minutes is an hour.

Hope this helps,
Stephen La Rocque.
