    Answer:

    3.75 hours

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given data

    DIstance driven from Gary, Indiana to Indianapolis= 160 mile

    Time taken= 2 1/2 hours or 2.5 hours

    Speed= distance/time

    Speed= 160/2.5

    Speed= 64 miles per hours

    We want to find the time it will take to drive 240 miles at the same speed

    Time= distance/speed

    Time= 240/64

    Time= 3.75 hours
