Math CentralQuandaries & Queries


Question from hubert, a student:

A car left the house and travelled at an average speed of 60 kph. How many minutes will it take for the car to reach the school which is 8 km away from the house

Hi Hubert,

The car is travelling at 60 kilometers per hour. There are 60 minutes in an hour so how far does the car travel in 1 minute?
