**Q 1 - A car travels 117 miles at the speed of 36 miles per hour. Find the time taken for the journey using the formula d = r*t.**

### Answer : C

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

Distance, d = 117 miles; speed, r = 36 miles/hour

**Step 2:**

Using the formula d = r*t; Time taken, $t = \frac{d}{r} = \frac{117}{36} = 3.25$ hours

**Q 2 - A boat can go 56 miles in $\mathbf{2\frac{2}{3}}$ hours. Find the speed of the boat using the formula d = r*t.**

### Answer : B

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

Distance, d = 56 miles; time, t = $2\frac{2}{3}$ hours = $\frac{8}{3}$ hour

**Step 2:**

Using the formula d = r*t; Speed, $r = \frac{d}{t} = 56 \div \frac{8}{3} = \frac{56}{1} \times \frac{3}{8} = 21$ miles per hour

**Q 3 - A boat can go 60 miles in $\mathbf{3\frac{3}{4}}$ hours. Find the speed of the boat using the formula d = r*t.**

### Answer : D

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

Distance, d = 60 miles; time, t = $3\frac{3}{4}$ hours = $\frac{15}{4}$ hour

**Step 2:**

Using the formula d = r*t; Speed, $r = \frac{d}{t} = 60 \div \frac{15}{4} = \frac{60}{1} \times \frac{4}{15} = 16$ miles per hour

**Q 4 - A car travels 120 miles at the speed of 48 miles per hour. Find the time taken for the journey using the formula d = r*t.**

### Answer : A

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

Distance, d = 120 miles; speed, r = 48 miles/hour

**Step 2:**

Using the formula d = r*t; Time taken, $t = \frac{d}{r} = \frac{120}{48} = 2.5$ hours

**Q 5 - A bus travels for 4 hours at the speed of 32 miles per hour. Find the distance traveled using the formula d = r*t.**

### Answer : B

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

Speed, r = 32 miles/hour

Time taken, t = 4 hours

**Step 2:**

Using the formula d = r*t; Distance, d = r*t = 32 × 4 = 128 miles

**Q 6 - A bus travels for $\mathbf{3\frac{1}{2}}$hours at the speed of 48 miles per hour. Find the distance traveled using the formula d = r*t.**

### Answer : C

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

Speed, r = 48 miles/hour

Time taken, $t = 3\frac{1}{2}$ hours = $\frac{7}{2}$ hours

**Step 2:**

Using the formula d = r*t; Distance, d = r*$t = 48 \times \frac{7}{2} = 168$ miles

**Q 7 - A car travels 108 miles at the speed of 40 miles per hour. Find the time taken for the journey using the formula d = r*t.**

### Answer : A

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

Distance, d = 108 miles; speed, r = 40 miles/hour

**Step 2:**

Using the formula d = r*t; Time taken, $t = \frac{d}{r} = \frac{108}{40} = 2.7$ hours

**Q 8 - A bus travels for $\mathbf{3\frac{2}{3}}$ hours at the speed of 36 miles per hour. Find the distance traveled using the formula d = r*t.**

### Answer : D

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

Speed, r = 36 miles/hour

Time taken, $t = 3\frac{2}{3}$ hours = $\frac{11}{3}$ hours

**Step 2:**

Using the formula d = r*t: Distance, d = r*t = $36 \times \frac{11}{3} = 132$ miles

**Q 9 - A car travels 150 miles at the speed of 48 miles per hour. Find the time taken for the journey using the formula d = r*t.**

### Answer : A

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

Distance, d = 150 miles; speed, r = 48 miles/hour

**Step 2:**

Using the formula d = r*t: Time taken, $t = \frac{d}{r} = \frac{150}{48} = 3\frac{1}{8}$ hours

**Q 10 - A boat can go 45 miles in $\mathbf{3\frac{3}{4}}$ hours. Find the speed of the boat using the formula d = r*t.**

### Answer : C

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

Distance, d = 45 miles; time, t = $3\frac{3}{4}$ hours = $\frac{15}{4}$ hour

**Step 2:**

Using the formula d = r*t: speed, $r = \frac{d}{t} = 45 \div \frac{15}{4} = \frac{45}{1} \times \frac{4}{15} = 12$ miles per hour
