    You need to have both speeds in the same units to affirm something, converting Alina's speed into meters per second or Talia's speed into miles per hour. • 1 mile per hour = 0,44704 meters per second Soon Alina's speed is = 2.5 x 0.44704 = 1.12 meters per second or Talia's speed = 1.8 / 0.44704 = 4.02 miles per hour Comparing the speeds we can say that Talia is able to swim about 1.52 miles per hour or 0.68 meters per second faster than Alina.
