    23. A car traveled a distance of d miles in t minutes at an average rate of r miles per minute. What is the ratio of d to r ?
    (1) t = 30
    (2) d = 25

    Hi,

    I thought the answer is C) but turned out to be A)... Can anyone please explain why A is correct?

    From the problem statement we get that d/t=r (distance/time=speed). We can state this as d/r=t. (1) says t=30 which is the ratio of d to r and hence the answer is A.
