Question:

A car traveled at 65 miles per hour for \(1\frac{1}{2}\) hours and then traveled at 50 miles per hour for \(2\frac{1}{2}\) hours. How many miles did the car travel?

A 222.5 miles
explanation

Multiply the car’s speed by the time traveled to find the distance.
1.5(65) = 97.5 miles
2.5(50) = 125 miles
97.5 + 125 = 222.5 miles
