If the rate in the problem gives

**miles per hour**(**mph**), then**time**must be in hours. If the**time**is given in minutes, divide by sixty to determine the number of hours prior to solving the equation. To**find distance**, use the formula: To**find**rate, divide both sides of the equation by**time**.Keeping this in consideration, how do you calculate how fast you walk?

Take

**the**number of minutes it took to**walk**1 mile and**calculate your speed**. Divide 60 by**the**number of minutes it took you to**walk**1 mile. If it took you 20 minutes to**walk**one mile, you**walked**at 3 mph, or 60 divided by 20. If you**walk a**mile in 15 minutes, divide 60 by 15 to get**a walking speed**of 4 mph.How many miles per hour is walking?

Although

**walking**speeds can vary greatly depending on**many**factors such as height, weight, age, terrain, surface, load, culture, effort, and fitness, the average human**walking**speed at crosswalks is about 5.0 kilometres**per hour**(km/h), or about 1.4 meters**per**second (m/s), or about 3.1**miles per hour**(**mph**).How long should it take you to walk a mile?

The people that normally walk very briskly might normally walk

**4mph**, which would get you a 15 minute mile, but faster than that is going to be uncommon, unless they walk fast for exercise or race walk (At which point the world record pace at the 20km distance works out to be a pace a bit above six minutes/mile).
