(just write the number)

40
EDDIE SAYS
Jack travels 40 miles in 1 hour. 40 x 1 = 40
• Question 2

Jack drives to London at a constant speed of 40 miles per hour.

How far will he travel in miles in 2 hours?

(just write the number)

80
EDDIE SAYS
Jack travels 40 miles in 1 hour, so he travels 80 miles in 2 hours. 40 x 2 = 80
• Question 3

Jack drives to London at a constant speed of 40 miles per hour.

How far will he travel in miles in ½ hour?

(just write the number)
