for 1 min - y/m yards
for 60 mins (1 hr) - 60y/m yards
for x hours - 60xy/m yards . E

D. \(\frac{60ym}{x}\)

E. \(\frac{60xy}{m}\)



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.

The best answer is E.

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.
