  1. A fish swims at a speed of 12 miles per hour. A boy swims at a speed of 4.4 feet per second.

    3 ft = 1 yd

    5280 ft = 1 mi

    How much faster does the fish swim than the boy in yards per minute?

  2. 1a. 0.5x + 5 =< 30.

    b. 0.5x =< 30-5
    X =< 50 miles.

    2. 12mi/h * 5280ft/mi * 1yd/3ft * 1h/60min = 352 Yds./min. = Speed of the fish.

    4.4ft/s * 1yd/3ft * 60s/min = 88 yds./min. = Speed of the boy.

    352 - 88 = 264 yds./min faster.
