The rear wheels of a car crossed a certain line 0.5 second after the front wheels crossed the same line. If the centers of the front and rear wheels are 20 feet apart and the car traveled in a straight line at a constant speed, which of the following gives the speed of the car in miles per hour? (5280 feet = 1 mile)

A. $$\left(\dfrac{20}{5280}\right)\left(\dfrac{60^2}{0.5}\right)$$

B. $$\left(\dfrac{20}{5280}\right)\left(\dfrac{60}{0.5}\right)$$

C. $$\left(\dfrac{20}{5280}\right)\left(\dfrac{0.5}{60^2}\right)$$

D. $$\dfrac{(20)(5280)}{(60^2)(0.5)}$$

E. $$\dfrac{(20)(5280)}{(60)(0.5)}$$
