Could you be more specific on what you are trying to do, and post your world in progress so we can see? No one will do your project for you, but specific helpful advice and pointers are fine.

Thank you for viewing my question.. I just need a little help on how to begin. The tutorials were helpful on how to place things in the world etc but im still confused. so heres my assignment--Create a world with a convertible (Vehicles) and a person of your choice (People) that will determine the drive time to Hana. The user is asked the number of miles between the current location and Hana, and the speed limit for the road to get there. Set up variables for the values. Create a third variable to hold the calculated hours for the trip. The formula for hours is as follows: miles divided by speed limit. At this point, the person should approach the camera, and the convertible should come into view, stopping next to the person. The person should look at the convertible, turn to the camera, and say a message in bubble text that includes the time in hours it will take to reach Hana. The car should drive away, and the person should walk in the opposite direction.

IVE BEEN HOLDING MY HEAD FOR HOURS

Hopefully it will get you started.

I have other tutorials on my YouTube channel, or you could do a YouTube search for other tutorials - there's plenty out there.
