12.2 ft/sec how many days will it take to complete its journey with the circumference of the earth is 25000 miles. How do i work this problem out don't want the answer just want to know how to solve it!

    2500 = speed * time

    speed = 12.2 ft/s * 1 mile/5280 ft * 3600 s/hr*24 hr/day
    = 200 miles/day

    25000 mile = 200 miles/day * x days

    x = 25000/200
