The rest of the time it flies at 600 mph. How long does it take to fly a distance of 2700 miles? : Write a distance equation; dist = speed * time .5(300) + t(600) + .5(300) = 2700 150 + 600t + 150 = 2700 600t + 300 = 2700 600t = 2700 - 300 600t = 2400 t = 2400/600 t = 4 hrs at 600 mph : Total time: .5 + 4 + .5 = 5 hrs
