Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well there's 60 minutes in an hour, if the bison can run up to 3520 feet per minute, in an hour it should be able to run 60 times that, therefore 211200 feet per hour. 1 mile is 5280 feet therefore if you divide 211200 feet per hour by 5280, you get 40 miles per hour. 40 mph is greater than 30mph therefore the bison is faster (by 10 mph).
