    The distance by road from Newport to London is 140 miles.

    Tom travels by coach from Newport to London . The coach leaves Newport at1.30pm
    He assumes the coach will travel at an average speed of 50mph.
    Use his assumption to work out the arrival time.

    so set up a distance, speed , time triangle. put the 140 miles at the top & the 50mph in the left hand corner below. now you need to divide. this will give you the time but with a decimal. you need to change this into hours and minutes.

    there is a button on your calculator which does this: it is usually marked . , ,,
