## Answers ( )

Answer:y = 45x miles

Step-by-step explanation:Speed is the rate of change of distance with time. Mathematically,

speed = distance/time

Given that Darla travels at a constant speed of 45 miles per hour and for y miles, it takes her x hours then

45 = y/x

multiply both sides by x

45x = y

then the number of miles (y) Darla can drive in x hours

y = 45x (in miles)
