**What is Time?**

**Time **is defined as the ratio of distance by speed. It is measured in terms of seconds, minutes or hours. In general, time is defined as the measurable period during which a process or activity takes place. This is a short tutorial that explains you how to calculate time with distance and speed.

Let us learn here how to calculate time with speed and distance.

**Formula:**

**Time = Distance / Speed**

Consider, Ram travels a distance 45 miles at a speed of 15 mph. How much time does he take to travel the given distance?

Step 1: Given Values

Distance Travelled = 45 miles
