    I think you got the equation a tad wrong.

    Isn't suppose to be: Speed= Distance÷Time ?
    But you would only get the Average Speed for that trip.

    Isn't it an hour times(60mins / How many mins u spend on the trip) x (distance cover for the trip ) to give u speed?

    Example , I spend 18mins to complete 7km trip which means [60/18] x 7km = 23.3km/h

    It's all in the units people. Miles per hour (or miles/hours). This means distance/time. Multiplying distance times time gives units of "Miles times hours", not Miles per hour.

    No no no, you guys are way over thinking this. It very simple and can be easily solved with a simple word problem:

    Elvez leaves the house at 6am carrying 5/8 of a bushel of gear and enters a headwind of 9 nautical miles per hour. At the first intersection his progress is altered by an ice cream truck, driven by a donkey who forgot to take his methadone this morning. Three more intersections later, he is forced to take a detour because a truck carrying a large deliver of dildoes has overturned onto the roadway. After clearing the detour, he is forced to put in further miles at a higher rate of speed while being chased by a taxi driver on LSD. He finally arrives at work at 10:30PM the following Saturday. What was his average speed for this trip?

    Here is how you find average speed. I'll use the 4.18 mile run that I did in 34 minutes 33 seconds as an example.

    Step 1: Convert the seconds to minutes by dividing by 60. 33 ÷ 60 = 0.55 (33 seconds equals 0.55 minutes, so total time was 34.55 minutes)

    Step 2: Convert the minutes to hours by dividing by 60. 34.55 ÷ 60 = 0.57583333 (34.55 minutes equals 0.57583333 hours)

    Step 3: Divide total miles by total hours. 4.18 ÷ 0.57583333 = 7.259 (my average speed for the 4.18 mile run was 7.259 mph)

    Nice link!
    Now I can plan out distances with the use of shortcuts.
