Distance = speed * time
The key here is to convert the given data into the correct and compatible units.
Speed = 15 m/s
= 15 metres per second, while
Time = 12.0 minutes
= 12.0 * 60 seconds
= 720 seconds.
Now we can apply the formula
Distance = Speed * Time
= 15 metres/second * 720 seconds
= ___?___ metres
