If a jet flies at a speed of 600 km/h, how many meters does it fly in 10 seconds? There are 1000 meters in 1 km

Maya
First, convert the 600 km into 600,000 meters. Then, you find that 1 hr is 3,600 sec., so 600,000/3,600=x/10
Multiply 10 by 600,000, then divide by 10!
It gives you
1,666 and 2/3
(1666.67)
