Divide the miles he traveled by the time it took him to travel it. 22 1/2 / 1/3 Multiply by the reciprocal of 1/3: 22 1/2 * 3/1 Convert 22 1/2 into an improper fraction: 45/2 * 3/1 Multiply the numerators and denominators together: 135/2 Divide: 67.5 or 67 1/2 So his average speed in miles per hour is 67 1/2.

If he has travelled 22 1/2 miles in 1/3 of an hour, all you need to do is multiple his travelled distance by 3 to see how far he would have go in one hour.  22.5 x 3 = 67.5 So Kevin travelled at 67.5mph
