but I don't think that is what is expected. I think you are expected to convert this to say miles/hour or feet/minute or feet/second or some units other than miles/minute. For example let's convert miles/minute to miles/second. The units tell you what to do. There are 60 seconds in a minute so Now try some other units. Penny
