time=distance/ simple as that. and all the parameters are in same units we dont need conversion also.
Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

If you travel for one hour, how far have you gone    120 km.
If you travel for another hour how far do you additionally go.    120 km      total trip so far. 240 km.
If you travel for another hour how far do you additionally go.    120 km      total trip so far. 360 km.

you now need a fraction of an hour to complete the trip.   That fraction is
(additional distance needed/speed you are going)      40/120

Of course you could use shah's note to start with.
