# Excel/convert to mph( miles per hour)

I could be wrong, but I believe the formula given above is incorrect.  If you are trying to determine miles/hour then you'd insert the distance in the miles and time for the hour location.  Thus the formula would be

=A1/B1 (or =miles/hour)

if A1 has the distance and B1 has the time.

However, since the time given is in minutes, it obviously needs to be calculated into hours.  Thus making the formula:

=A1/(B1/60)

Just to test this... If one runs 3 miles in 45 minutes, then the mph should be 4.  =3/(45/60)  and one gets 4.
