#### Calculator

1. enter the speed in miles per hour
2. the time of travel in hours and or minutes
3. number of digits after the decimal point for the results

#### Result

1. the distance traveled in miles
2. the distance traveled in kilometres

### Formula

`distance = speed * time`

### Example

```You are travelling 96 miles per hour (speed and time) for 1 hour and 30 minutes (time).
Both speed/time and time have to be in the same units to make the multiplication.
Changing the 1 hour and 30 minutes into an hour format makes sense.

There are 60 minutes in one hour; to change one minute into hours, divide one by 60.
```
`1 ÷ 60 = 0.01666666666666666666666666666667.`
`Multiply this amount by 30;`
`0.01666666666666666666666666666667 * 30 = 0.5`
`1 hour and 30 minutes = 1.5 hours`
`Multiply 96 miles per hour by 1.5 hours to get the distance;`
`96 * 1.5 = 144`
`At a speed of 96 miles per hour for one hour and 30 minutes, you will travel 144 miles.`

### Conversions

```one hour = 60 minutes
one minute = 0.01666666666666666666666666666667 hours
one mile (mi) = 1.609344 kilometres (km)```
