Answer by Alan3354(30993)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!24/16 = 1.5 hours ------------- You want to solve for time, "how long" is time. 24 miles has no time 16 miles/hour has time, hours in the denominator 16 miles/hr --> 1/16 hours/mile ----------- Now you need to eliminate the miles in the denominator. Multiply by the 24 miles, the miles units cancel. 24 miles * (1/16) hour/mile = 24/16 hours = 1.5 hours. ------------- Make use of the units to figure out what to do, and to check that you did the right thing.
