### Math Challenge December 17

The Wright brothers used many calculations to create

their flying machine. The following formulas are

examples of some calculations commonly performed

by flight personnel today.

distance = rate x time

or

d = r t

This formula is used to find the distance a plane will

fly on a trip. It can also be used to find the speed of the

plane when the distance and time are given, or to find

the time when the distance and speed are given.

A plane travels at 375 knots (nautical miles per hour)

for 5 hours. How many nautical miles will the plane

travel?
