Rene is going to the lake to visit some friends. If the lake is 60 miles away, and Rene is driving at 40 miles per hour the entire time, how long will it take her to get to the lake

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Speed = 40 miles per hour

Distance = 60 miles

We know that

$Speed=\frac{Distance}{Time}$

$Time=\frac{Distance}{Speed}$

Substituting values of Distance and Speed in the equation

$\\ Time=\frac{60}{40}\\ \\ Time=1.5\hspace{5}hours$

So, Rene will take 1.5 hours to reach the lake.
