Question

A runner is traveling at a constant rate of 8 meters per second. How long does it take for the runner to travel 100 meters? Now before you answer this I know it’s 12.5! What I need help with is creating a equation that gives the distance, d, that the person has run if you know the amount of time, t, they have been running. Thank you! 🙂

## Answers ( )

Answer:see below

Step-by-step explanation:We know that distance = rate * time

100 meters = 8 m/s * time

100 = 8t

Divide each side by 8

100/8 = 8t/8

12.5 = t

If we know the rate and the time, we can find the distance

d = rt
