  1. I think this is how you do it - 5280 frt = 1 mile. 1 day = 24 hours/1 hour = 60 minutes. So i would use dimensional analysis, so you start with something that looks like a table and you fill in the answers using what you know from above. so it would be
    11000miles 5280ft 1day 1hour
    115day 1mile 24hrs 60 min
    the units cwould cross out so you are left with the units of feet and min what you need! then you take the numbers you have you take all of the number on top times each other so 1100*5280*1*1 and you take that divided by the numbers on the bottom 115*1*24*60 and that will give you get 350.725 ft per minute!
