### How many events happen when you drive one mile?

Infinitely many.
I will use a variant of Zeno's paradox to illustrate this.
Before you can drive a mile you must drive half a mile. So the
event of driving a mile can be split into two sub-events of driving
half a mile.
But before you can drive half a mile you must drive a quarter of
a mile. So the event of driving each half of a mile can be split
into two sub-events of driving a quarter of a mile - making 4
sub-events in all.
And then each of them can be split into two and so on, and
on.
Infinitely many.

###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic

### How fast to travel one mile in a car?

The answer may be several different numbers. It depends on the
speed of the car.
If driving at 60 miles per hour, then 1 minute to travel one
mile.
If driving at 150 miles per hour, then roughly 20 minutes to
cover one mile, including the stop for moving violation.
If digital speedometer reads ' 0 ' miles per hour, then one mile
requires a very very long time.
