for 1 min - y/m yards
for 60 mins (1 hr) - 60y/m yards

Convert the hour to mins:

x hours = 60x mins.

In m min swimmer travel y yards

In 1 min swimmer travels $$\frac{y}{m}$$ yards.

In 60x mins swimmer travels $$\frac{60xy}{m}$$ yards.

Perfect situation for the UNITS CONTROL technique:

$$?\,\,\,\, = \,\,\,\,x\,\,{\text{h}}\,\,\,\left( {\frac{{60\,\,\min }}{{1\,\,{\text{h}}}}\,\,\begin{array}{*{20}{c}} \nearrow \\ \nearrow \end{array}} \right)\,\,\left( {\frac{{y\,\,\,{\text{yards}}}}{{m\,\,\,\min }}\,\,\begin{array}{*{20}{c}} \nearrow \\ \nearrow \end{array}} \right)\,\,\,\, = \,\,\,\frac{{60xy}}{m}\,\,\,\,\,\,\left[ {{\text{yards}}} \right]$$

Arrows indicate licit converters.

The above follows the notations and rationale taught in the GMATH method.
