[(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.

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..

92ft/17sec x 60sec/1min x 60min/1hr x 1mi/5280ft =?
Ok, I started with what you said and mult by units of ONE til I got what you wanted....now put it on paper and start reducing all the words along with fractions and you'll end up with m/hr. You can use your calc for the numbers too.
