#### Calculator

1. enter the distance in miles
2. the speed in metres per minute

#### Results

1. the distance in miles converted to kilometres
2. the metres per minute converted to feet per minute
3. the time in minutes
4. the time in decimal hours
5. the time in hour, minute, and second format

##### Formula
```time = distance ÷ speed
```
##### Conversions
```one kilometre (km) = 0.621371192237334 miles (mi)
one mile (mi) = 1609.344 metres (m)
one hour (hr) = 60 minutes (min)
one metre per minute (m/mi) =  3.28083989501312 feet per minute (ft/min)
```
##### Example Calculation
`How long will it take to walk  15 miles at a speed of  22 metres per minute?`
`First, convert the 15 miles to a distance in metres;`
`15 * 1609.344 = 24140.16`
`15 miles equals 24140.16  metres`

`Divide the distance of  24140.16 feet by the speed of 22 metres per minute to get the time in minutes;`
`24140.16 ÷ 22 = 1097.28`
`It will take 1097.28 minutes to run the 15 miles at a speed of 22 metres per minute.`

`Convert to decimal hours by dividing by 60 (there are 60 minutes in one hour);`
`1097.28 ÷ 60 = 18.288`
`The time in hours equals 18.288 hr. = 18 hr - 17 min - 17 sec`
