Distance = speed * time

The key here is to convert the given data into the correct and compatible units.

For example,

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
