    I know the formula Rate x Time = Distance. However, I have a question where I am asked to find the time and not the distance? Can you give me some basic information about how to calculate the time using this formula or is there a different formula that I should be using? Thanks.

    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:

    1.To find rate divide through on both sides by time:

    Rate = Distance/Time

    Rate is distance (given in units such as miles, feet, kilometers, meters, etc.) divided by time (hours, minutes, seconds, etc.). Rate can always be written as a fraction ...

    By example, the solution uses the time, rate and distant formula to calculate a problem in a step-by-step process.
