#### Storyboard Text

• Oh no! The party starts in 7 minutes and I am 3 miles away!  I don't even know how long it will take me to arrive! I knew I should've taken an Uber.
• Don't worry! There is a simple way to figure out if you're going to be late! All you have to do is convert miles into time! If you walk with me, I'll explain!
• Okay, but I'm not sure that's possible!?
• It really is! Well first, you have to figure out how many minutes are in a mile. Lets say, It takes 15 minutes to walk one mile away.
• That seems quite complicated, but I think I understand!
•  Then you would multiply how many miles you have to go, with 15 minutes! That would be the conversion factor
•  If the party is 3 miles away and I am walking there, to convert miles into minutes I would multiply it by the conversion factor 15!
• Thank you for explaining all of that to me, but it looks like we've arrived at my destination! Thank you for all of your help! Au revoir.
• It was no issue! Thank you for walking with me! Have a fantastic day!
• 1. If you are traveling in a car for  30 minutes and in a car, 5 min = 1 mile, how many miles have you traveled?- 30 min/ 5min = 6 miles2. If you walk for 134 minutes, how many hours have you bee walking for?- 134/60 = 2.2 hours
