  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
