A small turtle moves at a speed of 186 furlongs per fortnight. Find the speed of the turtle in centimeters per second. Note that 1 furlong = 220 yards and 1 fortnight = 14 days.

To determine
The speed of the turtle in centimeter per second.

Explanation

Given Info: The distance covered by the turtle 186furlongs and time taken to cover this distance 1fortnight .

From unit transformation,

1furlongs=220yds

1yd=3ft

3.281ft=100cm

1fortnight=14days

1day=8.64×104s

Formula to calculate the speed of the turtle is,

v=lt

Substitute 186furlongs for l , 1fortnight for t , to calculate v ,

v=(186furlongs)
