Q:

How to calculate minutes per mile?

A:

To calculate minutes per mile, use the mathematical formula for rate (rate = distance/time). You need to know the distance traveled and the amount of time it took to travel that far.

1. Measure the amount of miles traveled

Make sure this measurement is in exact miles using standard form (no fractions). For example, if the distance is 10 1/2 miles, it should be written as 10.5.

2. Determine the time it took to travel the above distance

This figure should be converted into minutes if it is not already. Multiply the number of hours by 60 (the number of minutes in an hour) to convert into minutes. If the time was 2 hours, you would multiply 2 by 60, which equals 120 minutes.

3. Do the math

Divide the distance in miles by the time in minutes. For this example, 10.5 miles / 120 minutes = 0.0875 minutes per mile.

The general formula for the upper quartile is Q3 = 3 / 4 (n + 1), where "Q3" denotes the upper quartile and "n" indicates the total number of values in a sample set, while the formula for the lower quartile is Q1 = 1 / 4 (n + 1), where "Q1" represents the lower quartile. The upper and lower quartiles are measures in statistics.

To find the markup of goods, the formula to use is selling price of product = product cost + markup. An example of this type of problem is when a retailer buys an item at \$6 (cost) and sells it at \$7.20. Using the formula and this information, students can calculate the markup and the markup percent rate.
