Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You 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.
