    Look at the units. The answer has to be in miles/hour. So you need to divide the number of miles by the number of hours. But there's a twist. The time is given in seconds so you first have to convert it to hours. Try it on your own and see how you get along. I'll be here to help if you need it.

    conversion needed seconds to hours quantity to be determined

    hint: 25 seconds correspond to 25/3600 hours

    That's right. Can you figure out how many hours 25 seconds is?

    Nope. Do the math.

    hint: \[\Large \frac{{25}}{{3600}} = \frac{{25}}{{36 \times 100}} = \frac{1}{{36 \times 4}} = \frac{1}{{144}}\]

    multiply by 4 is the same as divide by (1/4)

    Look at the units! Look for the fraction that's got miles divided by time.

    36 miles per hour is correct but the important thing here is how to show the work
