A bird is flying around the world at a rate of 26.4 ft/sec. How many days will it take to complete its journey? (circumference of earth = 25,000 miles)
• Convert 25000 miles into feet.
(1 mile = 5280 ft)
• time = distance / speed
time = ______feet / 26.4 ft/sec = ________sec
• Convert the seconds into hours
( 1 hour = 3600 sec)
• Convert hours to days
( 1 day = 24 hours)
