A ship leaves the East Coast for California. It is traveling at a constant speed of five knots and takes 200 days to reach California. The ship arrives in California at the exact time of day that it left the East Coast. How far did the ship travel?
Please help with step by step.

5 knots = 5.8 mph
200 * 24 = 4800 hours
4800 * 5.8 = ______ miles

I though so too but the choices are:
41,400 miles
20,870 miles
27,600 miles
23,000 miles
We are both missing something here. 
Never Mind. Thank You
I was doing division instead of multiplying 
2400

41,400

So 4,800 * 5.8=27,600

27,600 miles
