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
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
