    The formula Distance = Rate x Time expresses one of the most frequently used relations in algebra.

    Since an equation remains true as long as you divide through by the same non-zero element on each side, this formula can be written in different ways:

    To find rate, divide through on both sides by time:

    Rate = Distance / Time

    Rate is distance (given in units such as miles, feet, ...
