**Help with visualizing this problem....**

I am having a bit of brain lock-up at the moment...and just can not seem to see my way through this problem.

A vehicle takes "t" to travel one mile. If the vehicle's speed was 5 mph faster then the "t" to travel the one mile would of been 11 seconds less. What is the original speed of the vehicle.

I first thought of the formula d=vt but even with looking at the problem with v1 and v2 and/or t1 and t2 with even making a bunch of drawings ...I am just at a loss. I am beginning to think I do not have enough information.

Can someone give me a gentle nudge in the right direction to get me back on track?

Thanks
