@Sophie1888,
The general formula is
D(istance) = R(ate of speed) x T(ime in portions of an hour)

So the question gives you the distance and rate of speed, so what should you do?
Info you're given:
D = 80 miles
R = 50 mph
T = how long does it take

So you need to figure out how to adapt the general formula. I'll bet you can do that part and come up with answer yourself.

@Ragman,
I've semi-successfully fought off the notion to introduce Xeno's paradox.
