Unit Conversion. Help Please.
posted by Patrick DiCoco .
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.
55miles per hour to ?yards per ?minute

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 
(mi/hr)(hr/min)(yds/mi) = yds/min
so
55 * 1/60 * 1760
