Get Going with Rate: Activity 2 of 3



Choose one of these formulas to answer this question:

Distance = Rate × Time (D = R × T)

Rate = Distance/Time (R = D/T)

Time = Distance/Rate (T = D/R)

A horse runs about 35 mph. An ostrich, at full speed, runs 31 mph - not bad for a two-legged bird. The road from Fargo, North Dakota, to Houston, Texas, is about 1,300 miles. How long will it take an ostrich to run this distance at full speed?

Choose the formula you would use to solve this problem. Type 1, 2, or 3 for your answer.

1) D=RxT

2) R=D/T

3) T=D/R
