And we want to figure out uhhhh, 16 knots in 1 hour.

Solving it is easy, I'm just trying to think of the correct equation they want to see hehe.

is it 97280 feet? 6080 times 16?

Yes, simple as that! :)

cool, yea idk what equation they wanna see either lol could it just be 6080(16) = x or something?

How bout part b, any ideas? c:

i have no idea about that one lol

Let's call that unknown amount, x.

So,\[\Large\rm \frac{97280ft}{hr}=\frac{x~mi}{hr}\]

The units on the bottom are the same, we'll get rid of those, ignore them.\[\Large\rm 97280ft=x~mi\]

What next, how do we solve for x? c:
What do you think?

uhh divide 97280 by 16?

sorry i'm not really sure about this one, would be it to divide it by 6080?

6080 divided by 97280? which is 0.0625?

oh so 97280 divided by 5280 = 18.42?

Ok good job \c:/
So we figured out that `16knots per hour` is equivalent to `18.42miles per hour`

thank you!
