It is very helpful to be able to calculate how much time it will take to get from one place to another when traveling at a certain speed, or how far you will travel if you are moving at a certain rate or speed for a given amount of time

You might find questions like these on the ASVAB. They are not difficult to solve. The formula to use is

*distance = rate × time*

*d = r × t*

*Distance* is how far you travel, *rate* is how fast you are moving, and *time* is how long it takes you to travel.

Let’s work through a few examples.

**Find the Distance.** If you travel on your motorcycle at an average speed of 45 miles per hour for 2 hours, how far will you travel?

Set up the information in the formula:

**Find the Rate. ...**
