The formula for determining time spent traveling requires dividing the distance traveled by the rate traveled. In this case, the distance, 100 miles, is divided by the rate, 25 miles per hour. The time, then, is four hours. Any one of the three components of distance, time or rate is determined if the other two are known by plugging the known factors into the equation rate multiplied by time equals distance.

The quantity 150 kilometers per hour, abbreviated as kph or km/h, can be converted into miles per hour, abbreviated as mph, by dividing the quantity by 1.609, which would equal 93.226 miles per hour. This is because one mile per hour is equal to 1.609 kilometers per hour, so any quantity in kilometers per hour must be divided by 1.609 in order convert the quantity into miles per hour.
