Answer:

20 hours

Step-by-step explanation:

Mathematically we know that;

time = distance/ speed

distance = 239,000 miles

Time = 200 miles per minute

time = 239,000/200 = 1195 minutes

Let us convert this to hours by dividing by 60 (since 60 minutes equal an hour

So we have 1195/60 = 19.91

This is approximately 20 hours
