    The rate would be 75 miles in 1 hour.

    Set up a proportion to solve this:

    3 1/8 miles in 2.5 minutes gives us the ratio 3.125/2.5.

    The second ratio would be x miles in 60 minutes, or x/60.

    3.125/2.5 = x/60

    Cross multiply:

    187.5 = 2.5x

    Divide both sides by 2.5:

    187.5/2.5 = 2.5x/2.5

    75=x
