Rate at which Frieda walks = 6 feet per second, a pace which is 1/3 as fast as Evita's pace

Evita's pace = 3 * 6 feet per second = 18 feet per second

Evita's pace is twice as fast as Pablo's, Pablo's pace = 18/2 feet per second = 9 feet per second

Pablo walks 9*60*60 feet per hour = 32400 feet per hour

Frieda - 6 ft per second
Evita - 18 ft per second
Pabalo - 9 ft per second

Pabalo - 9 x 60 x 60 = 32,400 which is answer C

E's speed = 18 feet/sec = 2 * P's speed => P's speed = 9 feet/sec
P:
1 sec = 9 feet
1 hr = 3600 sec = 9 *3600 feet = 32400 feets
C

freida pace is 6 fps
evita pace is 6*3 fps = 18 fps
Pablo pace is 18/2 = 9 fps = 9*60*60 = 32400 feet per hour

The rate of Frieda is 6 feet per second, and that rate is 1/3 as fast as Evita’s rate. Thus,

1/3(Evita’s rate) = 6

Evita’s rate = 18 feet per second

Since Evita’s rate is twice as fast as Pablo’s rate, Pablo’s rate is 18/2 = 9 feet per second.

Thus, Pablo can walk 9 x 3,600 = 32,400 feet in an hour.

(Note: 1 hour = 3,600 seconds)
