The equation

All of the calculations in this section will be worked out using the distance, speed and time equation.

An easy way to remember the distance, speed and time equations is to put the letters into a triangle.

3 triangles to illustrate the speed, distance, time equations

The triangles will help you remember these 3 rules:

Distance = Speed \times Time

Time = \frac{{Distance}}{{Speed}}

Speed = \frac{{Distance}}{{Time}}

On the next page there are some examples to work through.

Have paper and a pen handy, draw the distance, speed and time triangle on your paper, then try the examples.
