2nd snail goes 35 cm in 7 minutes

so 35/7 in 1 minute, so

In 1 minute it goes 5 cm

then in 1 hr, 10 or 70 minutes it would got

70(5) or 350 cm

4th snail:

39 cm in 6 minutes

100 cm in (6/39)(100) = 600/39 minutes

or 1 m in 600/39 minutes

1000 m in 600000/39 minutes

1 km in 15384.6 min = 256 hours, 25 minutes.

Why is all the other data given?
