There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:

Hallo kook 44,
think that you have to find m for one sek which is m/s. Now you have the distance the cyclist travels in 1 sec. Then if you want to find how many meters he travelled for 1 min you should multiply by 60. If the number of minutes is X then multiply by 60X. Think that E) is your ANS
In general, the idea is to find what is the distance per unit, let's say second, hour and so on.
What is X in terms of Y , this is basically to express X through Y
Hope it helps

You need to understand what the units mean if you want to solve it. Fortunately, understanding what the units mean isn't going to be very tough.

FOr instance, m/s simply means number meters divided by number of seconds, so that it gives you a rate of how many meters is covered in a single second.

We know our rate here = m/s meters per second. In one minute, there're 60 seconds, so in x minutes, there're 60x seconds. The distance is therefore 60mx/s.

Yep. OA is E.
Thanks for the help guys. I just get confused whether saying "m" meters per second is the same as writing "m/s" because m/s is also used as the "unit" in an expression. ie- "five meters per second" is written as 5 m/s. is this the same as saying 5/1 = m/s as a ratio?
so in this question, if y is the number of meters the cyclist travels,
m/s = y/60x
