I've never seen a problem like this, please help.
I think we have the number part right but what would the unit be once the math is done?
Please show me how you came up with the answer so I will know for next time.
30 miles/1 ton x 5280 feet/1 mile x 1 hour/60 minutes x 1 minute/60 seconds
I really don't get this. Thank you

Are you sure that does not start out as 30 miles/hr? If so, you would end up after doing the multiplication with the equivalent speed in ft/sec.
Otherwise, it is 44 ft hr/ton*sec, which makes no sense
