# Is resistance to motion directly proportional to the speed of a moving object?

Power is known to be equal to the force x velocity (P=FV).

Im solving a question that states the following :

Car with engine working at 32 kW, mass of 1 tonne, travels at a constant speed of 40m/s along a level road.

Given that the resistance to motion is directly proportional to the speed at which the car is travelling, find the resistance experienced when the car is travelling at 30m/s

How is the text in Bold correct ?? P=FV .. Which means F=P/V, Velocity(speed) of car is indirectly proportional to the Force !! Can someone please explain this ?
