2. The speed of a garden snail = 50m / per hour
The speed of cheetah = 120 km/ per hour
1 km = 1000 m
Speed of a garden snail = 50/1000
= 1/20 ( or ) 0.05
Speed of a cheetah = 1/20:120
= 20/20:20
x 120
= 1:2400

3. The speed of a garden snail =50/perhour
The speed of cheetah=120km/per hour
1km=100m
Speed of garden snail =50/1000
1/20(or)0.05
Speed of cheetah =1/20:120
20/20:20
*120
=1:2400
