Aiden is planning to drive from City X to City Y. The scale drawing below shows the distance between the two cities with a scale of ¼ inch = 18 miles.
The scale map says the distance from city X to City Y is 3 1/2 inch
If Aiden drives at an average speed of 30 miles per hour during the entire trip, how much time, in hours and minutes, will it take him to drive from City X to City Y?
Answer: 8 hours and 24 minutes
if 1/4=18 then 1=72.
72×3 1/2= 252
252/30=8.4 hours or 8 hours and 24 minutes.
