[(92 ft.)(60 sec/min)(60 min/hr)] / [(17 sec)(5280 ft/mile)] = your answer in miles/hr.

Thank you for responding! I'm still confused. :(. Here is basically what I'm trying to figure out:

How fast does my car need to be going in order to go 92 feet in just 17 seconds? Or:
I have 17 seconds to go 92 feet driving my car. How fast do I need to go (MPH)?

Let me break it down for you further.
Step 1) Divide 92 ft by 17 sec to get your answer in ft/sec.
Step 2) Multiply this by 60 sec/min and again by 60 min/hr to convert your answer to ft/hr.
Step 3) Divide this by 5280 ft/mile to convert your answer to miles/hr.

Divide 92 by 17 and there you go.

like Philogenitiveness said but then multiply by 60 to go from seconds to miniutes, then take that times 60 to get hours.....i think.....im not sure tho..
