Jason runs at a constant speed of 5 meters per second.

- How much time does it take Jason to run 240 meters?
- How many meters can Jason run in 55 seconds?
- Include the following in your answers:
- An estimate of what you think the answers might be
- The quantities involved in the problem
- A diagram, table, double number line, or other representation that shows why your solution makes sense
- Your equations, your work, and your solutions
- Two complete sentences that answer the questions

## Hint:

Multiply the rate 5 meters per second by the amount of time to find the distance traveled. For example, to find the distance traveled in 20 seconds, multiply 5 meters per second by 20 seconds:

20 seconds • 5 meters/second = 100 meters
