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

Correct Answer

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:

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