Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Alright, let's do this instead... Just plug in you're given values. Refer to that handy formula given to you. "speed = distance over time" which can also be written as s=d/t Since you're trying to find the runners speed, you would just fill in the appropriate variables with their values. His distance was 100, so d=100m His time was 11 seconds, so t=11s s=100/11 but now we have to convert...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To convert meters to miles, you divide the amount of meters given (100) by the amount in a mile (1609). And convert seconds to hours, divide the amount of seconds given (11) by the amount in an hour (3,600). \[s = \frac{ \frac{ 100 }{ 1609 } }{ \frac{ 11 }{ 3600 } }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Both numbers end up being a bit crazy... \[s=\frac{ 0.06215 }{ 0.00306 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@BearKolch It is better for the asker if you show them how to get the answer rather than just giving it. Also, D would be 24 miles per hour not 20.3
