The average urbanite walks about 2 yd per second.
A) How many seconds would it take to go 100yd?
B) How may seconds would it take to go 440yd?
Not sure how to go about to find the answer.

Divide.
What do you get? Do your answers make sense? 
Ms. Sue, I have been trying to answer these questions, But my answer doesn't match the answers in the back of the book.
Would you multiply be 60 sec. on each of these? If that is what you should do then the answers would be 6000 and 26400 sec.
If I divided I would come up with 50 and 220 
That's right.
It would take him 50 seconds to go 100 yards.
It would take him 220 seconds to go 440 yards.
