Speed = Distance/Time

s = 6.2 miles/34 minutes

s = 6.2 miles/34 minutes (60min/2hr)

s = 10.941176470588235 mi/hr

Now round to 2 digits

s = 11 mph

Never answer with more digits than given.

6.2*60/34=10.94118 mi/h.

You are given miles and minutes. So convert minutes to hours. Now you have miles and hours. What does per mean in math terms?

Distance Divided by Time (in hours) = Miles Per Hour.

34 minutes = 0.5667 hours

6.2 / 0.5667 = 10.94 Miles per hour (rounded = 11 Miles per hour)

formula

average speed = distance / time

34 minutes = 34/60 hours

6.2 x 60/34 = 10.9 mph.
