When you're new to this, I think it's easiest to do step by step 60 km/hr = 60,000 m/hr, because 1 km = 1,000 m = 60,000/60 m/min, because 1 hour = 60 minutes = 1,000 m/min = 1,000/60 m/sec, because 1 minute = 60 seconds = .... m/sec

You can multiply 60 Km/h by 5/18 to convert into m/s

No I didn't do it that way. Where did that come from?

we have KM/hour 1 KM=1000 m 1 hour= 3600 seconds so 1 KM/hour= 1000m/3600 seconds or 1KM/hour= 10/36 m/sec or 1 km/hour= 5/18 m/sec so to convert km/hour into m/s , multiply by 5/18

i think this way is conveniece \[60(km/h)\times(1h/3600s)\times(1000m/1km)\]
