### 3.6: Applying the Uniform Motion Equation

The uniform motion equation allows us to solve problems involving rate, or speed.

For example, let's say you need to drive 150 miles on the highway with an average speed of 55 miles per hour. How long will it take you to arrive at your destination? We can use a simple formula to solve for the time it will take to drive that distance.

Read the section on the distance, rate, and time formula. We use this equation for all uniform motion problems. Then, do examples 2.58 through 2.60 and check your answers. If you want more practice, you can try exercises 376 and 387.
