EXAMPLE 4 Standardized Test Practice A blimp travels 300 miles in 7.5 hours. The blimp travels at a constant speed. In Example 4, you’ll write and solve a multiplication equation to find the speed of the blimp. Blimps

10
EXAMPLE 4 Standardized Test Practice SOLUTION Use the formula d = rt. d = rt Write formula for distance. Substitute 300 for d and 7.5 for t. Divide each side by 7.5. Simplify. 300 7.5 7.5r 7.5 = 40 = r 300 = r (7.5) ANSWER The speed of the blimp is 40 miles per hour. The correct answer is C
