Speed equals time divided by distance

Calculating how much time you need.

In my last post I mentioned that you need to deternime what speed to drive to make the end of the rally on time. To determine that speed you use the most basic time speed distance roal rally equation.

Speed equals Time divided by Distance

or S = T/D

For example, lets say you have two hours to complete the course and turn in your answers. If the course is sixty miles long, you have to average 30 miles per hour to reach the end in time.

Basic TSD Rally math.

Um, is this right? I always thought Speed = Distance/Time, as indeed your example shows. Regards

Speed is definitely distance over time. Ex. miles per hour, meters per second, etc.
