The first step is to recognize the relationship between distance *x*, time *t* and speed *v*.
Speed is distance divided by time.

miles per hour = mi/hr

*v* = *x* / *t*

65 mi/hr =*x* / (1 min)

65 mi/hr =

Then we solve for *x*

We have units in our expression that did not cancel, so we use the following identity so that we can cancel time units

60 min = 1 hr

1 = (60 min) / (1 hr) = 60 min/hr

*x* = (65 mi min/hr)/(60 min/hr) = (65/60) mi
≈ 1.08 mi

1 = (60 min) / (1 hr) = 60 min/hr

In the final step, 65/60 mi is approximately 1.08333 miles, but we have rounded to a precision of one hundredth mile.
