On August 20, 1989, in Cologne, West Germany, Said Aouita of Morocco also established a world record when he ran the 3000 meter run in 7.00 minutes 29.45 seconds. What was his average speed (in m/s) for the race?

Do I divide 3000 by 7 minutes and 29.45 seconds?

Change the 7 minutes into seconds (60 seconds per minutes) and add that to the 29.45 seconds. Then divide 3000 by that number.
