Math CentralQuandaries & Queries


Question from mary, a parent:
A car traveling at 60 miles per hour, how many feet per second has it traveled?

Google [60 mph in feet per second]

Google itself will give you the answer, ignore the links it finds.

To do it the old-fashioned way, find

60 * (feet in a mile) / (seconds in an hour)

Good Hunting!
