**Math Story : Introduction To Speed**

**The Ultimate Chase**

**The Ultimate Chase**

**Narrator** : Cirha bangs the door open and rushes into the room panting and panicking.

**Cirha** : Uncle Math! Uncle Math! I was at the security room, and I just saw Asquarho Boss’s spaceship, heading towards Clemper town.

**Uncle Math** : Oh no! We have to stop him! Clemper town has important blueprints and data for all our gadgets.

**Narrator** : Uncle Math turns on his microphone like device.

**Uncle Math** : *[radio voice speaking into the mike]* Everyone assemble in the security room, I repeat everyone assemble in the security room. Quick!

**Uncle Math** : Asquarho Boss is about to reach Temper town and is heading for Clemper town.

**Triho** : Should we go by train, car, or spaceship to catch him?

**Uncle Math** : Triho we can determine that by finding out a few things first.

**Uncle Math** : Security! Can you tell us the distance from Temper town to Clemper town and how fast Asquarho Boss is travelling?

**Security** : The distance from Temper to Clemper town is 1600 km, and Asquarho Boss is travelling at 800 km/hr.

**Uncle Math** : Now, Squarho can you calculate how long it will take for Asquarho Boss to reach Clemper town?

**Squarho **: I remember what you taught me, Uncle Math. **Speed **is equal to distance divided by time. So, to find the **time**, we divide the distance by the speed.

**Uncle Math** : Absolutely correct!

**Squarho** : 1600 divided by 800 is 2. It will take two hours for Asquarho to reach Clemper town.

**Uncle Math** : We must get to Clemper town before him.

**Uncle Math** : Security! What is the distance from Samper town to Clemper town?

**Security** : The distance from Samper town to Clemper town is 1800 km.

**Uncle Math** : Cirha, can you tell us at what speed we should travel to reach Clemper town?

**Cirha **: Asquarho Boss will take two hours to reach Clemper town. To find out the minimum speed, we use the formula: Speed is distance divided by time. So, the distance is 1800 km, and the time is 2 hours. That means we need to travel at least 900 km/hr.

**Uncle Math** : Exactly right! The car goes at 100 km/hr, the train goes at 400km/hr, and the spaceship goes at 1000 km/hr. Triho, tell me, which one should we choose to reach before Asquarho Boss?

**Triho** : We need to take a spaceship to get there before Asquarho Boss!

**Uncle Math** : That’s correct! Let us hurry and stop Asquarho Boss.

**Triho, Squarho, Cirha and Cirho** : Yes! Let us go!

**Uncle Math** : There he is! Throw the net on him.

**Narrator **: They throws the net down.
