You'll need two conversion factors, one to convert yards to feet and the other to convert minutes to seconds. Where could you find such conversion factors?

what is the conversion factor you'd use to convert 6 yards to feet? Minutes to seconds?

so you would put 6 yards over 1 min and times that by 18 feet and 60 seconds?

Let me know if this helps or not \[\Large \frac{6 \ \text{ yards}}{1 \ \text{ minute}}\] \[\Large =\frac{6 \ \text{ yards}}{1 \ \text{ minute}} \times \frac{3 \ \text{ feet}}{1 \ \text{ yard}}\] \[\Large =\frac{6 \ \text{ yards}}{1 \ \text{ minute}} \times \frac{3 \ \text{ feet}}{1 \ \text{ yard}}\times \frac{1 \ \text{ minute}}{60 \ \text{ seconds}}\]

Notice how the "yards" units cancel out \[\Large \frac{6 \ \cancel{\text{ yards}}}{1 \ \text{ minute}} \times \frac{3 \ \text{ feet}}{1 \ \cancel{\text{ yards}}}\times \frac{1 \ \text{ minute}}{60 \ \text{ seconds}}\] so do the "minute" units \[\Large \frac{6 \ \text{ yards}}{1 \ \cancel{\text{ minute}}} \times \frac{3 \ \text{ feet}}{1 \ \text{ yards}}\times \frac{1 \ \cancel{\text{ minute}}}{60 \ \text{ seconds}}\] leaving just "feet" over "seconds"

what do you mean?

  • jim_thompson5910
you'll have 6*3*1 = 18 feet up top and 1*1*60 = 60 seconds down in the bottom now just reduce 18/60 to get what fraction?
