## anonymous one year ago a cruise ship is traveling at a speed of 20 knots. a knot is approximately equal to 1.151 miles per hour. What is the approximate speed the ship is traveling in yards per second?

1. anonymous

1 mile per hour = 0.488888889 yards per second

2. anonymous

can you explain

3. anonymous

convert from knots to miles per hour, then miles per hour to yards per second. Use this formula (I used example units of converting inches per minute to centimeters per minute $\frac{ 12 inches }{ \min }*\frac{ 2.54 centimeters}{ 1 inch }$
