Speedy Courier Service delivers packages by car. The service uses the equation above to calculate P, the total fee in dollars to deliver a package. In the equation, w is the weight of the package in pounds, t is the amount of driving time in minutes required to deliver the package, and m is the number of miles the courier must drive to deliver the package. A customer has an 3-pound package that she needs delivered to a colleague 30 miles away. If the delivery fee is $54, what is the driver's average speed in miles per hour?
