Hello I hope this email finds you well. Question how much distance dose' a vehicle  travel moving 35 MPH in 43 seconds.

Hi, I will be glad to help.

Distance always equals rate times time
D = r * t

But before multiplying, you must check your units.  Here, your units don't match.  You have miles per "hour" and seconds.
Since there are 60 seconds in 1 minute, and 60 minutes in 1 hour, there are 60 * 60, or 3600, seconds in one hour.  To change 43 seconds into hours, divide 43 by 3600.

Then, you can multiply the answer by the rate to get the distance, in miles.
