How It Works

### What are Minutes per Mile?

Minutes per mile mean how many minutes it takes to travel a mile.

It is very different from most other measures of speed.

With most speeds like miles per hour, the higher the number, the faster you are going.

But this is not the case with minutes per mile!

• the larger the number of minutes per mile, the slower you are traveling (you are taking more time to travel a mile)
• the smaller the number of minutes per mile, the faster you are traveling (you are taking less time to travel a mile)

Example

Tyger travels at 4 minutes per mile. Captain travels at 3 minutes per mile.

Who is traveling faster?

Tyger takes 4 minutes to travel a mile, but Captain only takes 3 minutes to travel a mile, so Captain is traveling faster.

How to convert Minutes per Mile to mph

To convert an amount from Minutes per Mile to Miles per Hour, you just need to divide 60 by the number of minutes per mile.

In other words:

• Miles per hour = 60 ÷ Minutes per mile

This is because 60 minutes per mile = 1 mile per hour.

### Worked Examples

1) Convert 12 minutes per mile into miles per hour.

To convert from minutes per mile into mph we need to divide 60 by the number of minutes per mile.

60 ÷ 12 = 5

So 12 minutes per mile = 5 mph.

2) Convert 2 minutes per mile into mph.

To convert from minutes per mile into mph we need to divide 60 by the number of minutes per mile.

60 ÷ 2 = 30

So 2 minutes per mile is the same as 30 mph.

3) Tyger runs a mile in 9.5 minutes. How many miles per hour did he average?

To convert from minutes per mile into mph we need to divide 60 by the number of minutes per mile.

60 ÷ 9.5 = 6.3 (to 1dp)

So he averaged a speed of 6.3 miles per hour (to 1dp).

4) A racing car takes 0.4 minutes to travel a mile. How many mph was it averaging?

To convert from minutes per mile into mph we need to divide 60 by the number of minutes per mile.

60 ÷ 0.4 = 150

So the car was travelling at an average speed of 150 mph.
