## ASVAB Arithmetic Reasoning Practice Question

If an object travels at 9 feet per second, how many feet does it travel in 2 hours?
 1,080 18 64,800 32,400

64,800

### Solution

Convert the object’s speed from feet per second to feet per hour:

$$9 \frac{ft}{s} \times 60 \frac{s}{min} \times 60 \frac{min}{hr}$$ = $$32,400 \frac{ft}{hr}$$

Then multiply by the number of hours:

$$32,400 \frac{ft}{hr} \times 2 hr = 64,800 ft$$
