    5 knots = 5.8 mph

    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

  • 8th Grade Math -

    41,400

  • 8th Grade Math -

    So 4,800 * 5.8=27,600
