Adrian 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.
City X to City Y is 3 1/2 in.
If Adrian 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?

takes him 8.4 hrs

Step-by-step explanation:

if 1/4=18inch then 3 1/2=7/2 so 7/2 divide by 1/4=14 then 18 x 14=252

so distance is 252 miles

speed is 30mph so 252/30=8.4h

the answer might need the 0.4 in hrs too
