If you travel to the moon at a speed of 1500 mph how many days will the trip take?

At its closest, the Moon is about 226,000 miles away. Moving at a speed of 1500 mph, it would take about 150 hours or 6.25 days to cover this distance.
That's assuming you travel in a "straight line" from Earth to the Moon.
The paths followed by spacecraft are not usually simple "straight lines".
