Oscar learns that a point at Earth's equator travels a distance equal to Earth's circumference once every 24 hours. He wants to estimate know how fast a person standing at the equator travels as the planet rotates. Oscar looks online and finds that the diameter of Earth is 7,911.5 miles, and that Earth rotates at a speed of 1,518 feet per second. Using this information, how fast does a person standing still travel as Earth rotates, in miles per hour? Round your answer to the nearest whole number.
