 How fast do you walk?
 How fast does a car or a light beam travel?
 How long would it take to get to the moon using your feet,
a car, or light beam?
The answers to these questions can be solved with an equation for
calculating speed. To find the speed of a moving object, you must know
two things about the object:
 the distance it traveled
 the length of time it took to travel that distance
The distance is then divided by the
time. Another way to look at it is with the formula:
You will be using this formula to calculate the winners in a snowmobile
race.
