An alien rocketship is traveling at a speed of 34 feet per second. At this speed, how many miles will it travel in 1 hour? Round to the nearest thousandth.

Heres a hint

say you have a scale of measurement

a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h the scale between each level is 2 also

so a = 2 , b = 4 , c = 6 , d = 8 , e = 10 , f = 12 , g = 14 , h = 14

2a = b

X is y/a you want to see what it is for y/h

Xy/a or X travels at y/a

( X y / a ) ( 2 a / b ) =

( 2Xy/b ) ( 2b/c) =

b to c =

thats process of converting units of measure

we could have other unit of measure say its

j, k ,L, m, y each unit is a factor 10

10,100 ,1000, 10,000 ,100,000

convert to L

( 4xy/c ) ( 10m / y ) = 40 xm / c

40 xm / c ( 10L / m ) = 400 xL/ c

I hope I did that correctly if not someone say some thing !!!!!

34 ft / sec

Heres a hint

say you have a scale of measurement

a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h the scale between each level is 2 also

**not related to y**so a = 2 , b = 4 , c = 6 , d = 8 , e = 10 , f = 12 , g = 14 , h = 14

2a = b

X is y/a you want to see what it is for y/h

Xy/a or X travels at y/a

**Xya**( X y / a ) ( 2 a / b ) =

**( 2Xy / b )**note you have converted**a**units into**b**units( 2Xy/b ) ( 2b/c) =

**( 4xy/c)**conversion of b to c nowb to c =

**4xy/c**thats process of converting units of measure

we could have other unit of measure say its

j, k ,L, m, y each unit is a factor 10

10,100 ,1000, 10,000 ,100,000

convert to L

( 4xy/c ) ( 10m / y ) = 40 xm / c

40 xm / c ( 10L / m ) = 400 xL/ c

I hope I did that correctly if not someone say some thing !!!!!
