Using Rate To Determine Speed & Distance

Distance Equals Rate Times Time

Work Time

Distance Equals Rate Times Time

Emma walked 3 miles in 60 minutes.

  • What was her walking speed in terms of a rate?
  • If she walks 4.5 miles at the same rate, how long will she walk?
  • If she walks for 15 minutes at the same rate, how far will she walk?
  • Make a double number line to show the relationships between the numbers.

Hint:

  • What are the quantities in the situation?
  • How can you find the walking speed in terms of a rate?
  • Did you use the expression d =rt to help you solve for time or distance?
