If youâre traveling 80 miles per hour, how long does it take you to go 80 miles?
Thatâs the relatively simple math question Travis Chambers posed to wife Chelsea on a road trip from Logan, Utah, to Boise, Idaho, to visit her family while his camera was rolling.
Her husband posted the video on YouTube, titling it, âThe real meaning of MPH,â where her muddled math has unexpectedly racked up more than 3.5 million views.
âI donât know. Because if I run the mile in like 9 minutes, then, I mean but thatâs when Iâm out of shape,â she says in the video. âWhen Iâm really in shape itâs like 7 minutes âŚ and that takes me a mile. And weâre going 80 miles. And Iâm running 10 mph, if that.â
Using her own running speed as a basis, and taking into account the tire speed, weight of the car, and whether itâs a stick or an automatic, she uses roundabout logic to come up with an educated guess.
âItâs got to take like 58 minutes or something,â she says, not too far off from the correct answer of 60 minutes.
