That would be 3200 miles an hour.

1 hr is 60 minutes. 1.5 minutes is 1/40th of an hour. So multiply 80*40 and you get 3200.

Another way to do this would be to get it into miles per minute.

80 miles in 1.5 minutes  = 53.333333333 repating miles per minute.

53.3333333333 x 60 minutes in an hour = 3200
