Bob just got hired for on-the-road sales and will travel about 1,500 miles a week during a 40 hour work week. If the time spent traveling is $1840_w9_h37.png$ of his week, how many hours a week will he be on the road?

A Bob spends about 27 hours of his 40 hour work week on the road.
Explaination
To get $1840_w9_h37.png$ of the 40 hours, simply multiply 40 by $1840_w9_h37.png$: Number of hours traveled in a 40-hour work week is: $2965_w245_h37.png$ (The solution to this problem does not actually require the information about the 1,500 miles Bob travels in a week.)
B Bob spends about 13 hours of his 40 hour work week on the road.
C Bob spends about 20 hours of his 40 hour work week on the road.
D Bob spends about 22 hours of his 40 hour workweek on the road.
