Q:
# A sea turtle swims at a speed of 27 kilometers per hour. A girl swims 14 decimeters per second.1 m = 10 dm1000 m = 1 kmHow much faster does the sea turtle swim than the girl in meters per minute?Enter your answer in the box. ____m/min

Accepted Solution

A:

366 m/min
First, convert the turtles speed to meters per minute.
27 km/h * 1000 m/km = 27000 m/h / 60 min/h = 450 m/min
Now convert the girls speed to meters per minute.
14 dm/s / 10 dm/m * 60 s/min = 84 m/min
Now subtract the girl's speed from the turtle's speed.
450 m/min = 84 m/min = 366 m/min
