Timothy gets a phone call from his friends.  They say they will be at the library in 25 minutes and ask him to meet them there.  The library is 5/8 of a mile away.  Timothy walks at a steady pace of 2 1/2 miles per hour.  Will he get there first.

2.5 miles per hour = 1/24 miles per minute

Speed x Time = Distance; thus, Time = Distance / Speed

Therefore: Time = (5/8 miles) / (1/24 miles per minute) = 15 minutes

Timothy will be at the library in 15 minutes, so yes, he will get there first (10 minutes before his friends, to be exact)

Please best my answer.
