    well, we need to convert both speeds to the same units so... 12 inches per minute can be converted to feet per hour first, we can convert 12 inches to feet by dividing by 12. that gives us: 1 foot per minute then we can convert minutes to hours by multiplying by 60 minutes, since there are 60 minutes in one hour so tortoise B travels 60 feet per hour now, going back to tortoise A, tortoise A travels 52.0 feet per hour so which is faster?
