9 * 60 * 60 = 32,400 feet per hour

To find the miles per hour, divide:

32,400 / 5,280 = ? miles per hour

60mph=88fps

18/88=x/60 will do it.

**Ms. Sue**, Monday, December 8, 2008 at 4:55pmWhen I was a kid, my dad was appalled that I didn't know that 5,280 feet = 1 mile. Since we were on a long car trip, I had plenty of time to memorize that number. I still remember it after 60 years. <g>
