You are competing in a mountain bike race. Your average speed is 10 mi/hr. If the racecourse is 65 miles long, how many minutes will it take you to finish the race?

65 miles ÷ 10 mi/hr

=

6.5 x 60 {multiplied 6.5 by 60 to get total minutes}

=

=

**6.5 hours**{divided distance by rate to get time distance = rate x time}**{60 minutes in 1 hour}**6.5 x 60 {multiplied 6.5 by 60 to get total minutes}

=

**390 minutes**{multiplied}*- Algebra House*
