Jason's boat can travel 24 3/4 miles in 1/2 hour. what is his average speed in miles per hour ?

49 and a half miles an hour.

24 3/4 miles is the distance

1/2 hour - is time

V=S/t

24[tex]\frac{3}{4}[/tex] / 0.5 = [tex]\frac{(24*4+3)2}{4}[/tex]=49.5 miles per hour

His boat can go [tex]49.5mph[/tex]

[tex]\text{Average speed}=49\dfrac{1}{2}[/tex] miles per hour

Step-by-step explanation:

Formula to find the average speed is given by :-

[tex]\text{Average speed}=\dfrac{\text{Distance}}{\text{Time}}[/tex]

Given : Distance = [tex]24\dfrac{3}{4}[/tex] miles=[tex]\dfrac{24\times4+3}{4}[/tex] miles

[tex]=\dfrac{99}{4}[/tex] miles

Time =[tex]\dfrac{1}{2}[/tex] hour

Then, [tex]\text{Average speed}=\dfrac{\dfrac{99}{4}}{\dfrac{1}{2}}[/tex]

i.e. [tex]\text{Average speed}=\dfrac{99\times2}{4}=\dfrac{99}{2}[/tex]

i.e. [tex]\text{Average speed}=49\dfrac{1}{2}[/tex] miles per hour

49 1/2 is the answer. you just need to multiply 24 3/4 by 2 to get the answer

49 1/2 miles per hour

His boat can go [tex]49.5mph[/tex]

49 1/2 miles per hour

Step-by-step explanation:

To determine the average speed, we take the miles and divide by the hours

speed ÷ hours

24 3/4 ÷ 1/2

Change the mixed number to an improper fraction

24 3/4 = (4* 24+3)/4 =99/4

99/4 ÷ 1/2

Copy dot flip

99/4 * 2/1

99/2

Change to a mixed number

2 goes into 99 49 times (49*2 = 98) with 1 left over

49 1/2 miles per hour

49 and a half miles an hour.
