Hi, I having trouble with unit conversions. I don't really get the concept of what I have to do. Please, if anyone could help and explain step by step on how to approach an equation like this, it would much appreciated. Thanks.

Unit Conversion. Help Please.  bobpursley, Friday, January 11, 2013 at 8:49pm
the idea is to convert both distance and time.
55mi/hr change distance first
55mi/hr*1760yds/miHr=55*1760yds/hr
then time
55*1760yds/hr*1hr/60min=
1760*55/60 yds/min

Unit Conversion. Help Please.  Damon, Friday, January 11, 2013 at 11:26pm
(mi/hr)(hr/min)(yds/mi) = yds/min
so
55 * 1/60 * 1760
