Solution Preview

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 ...
