If the speed of X meters per second is equivalent to the speed of Y kilometers per hour, what is Y in terms of X? (1 kilometer=1000 meters)

A. 15x/18
B. 6x/5
C. 18x/5
D. 60x
E. 3600000x

X meters per second -->
--> 3,600X meters per hour (as there are 3,600 seconds in one hour);
--> 3,600X/1,000=18X/5 kilometers per hour (as there are 1,000 meters in one kilometer).

Answer: C.

OR: if you are not comfortable with above manipulations with variable X then you can assume x to be equal to some #: let x=10.

Speed = 10 meters per second -->
--> 10*3,600=36,000 meters per hour -->
--> 36,000/1000=36 kilometers per hour.

So, if x=10, then y=36. Plug x=10 into the answer choices, the one which give 36 will be the correct answer:
A. 15x/18=150/18<36;
B. 6x/5=60/5=12;
C. 18x/5=36 correct choice;
D. 60x=600;
E. 3,600,000x=36,000,000.

Answer: C.

If the speed of x meters per second is equivalent to the speed of y kilometers per hour, what is y in terms of x? (1 kilometer=1000meters).

\(y*\frac{kilometers}{hour}=x*\frac{meters}{seconds}\)

\(y*\frac{1\;kilometer}{1\; hour}*\frac{1000 \;meters}{1 \;kilometer}*\frac{1\; hour}{3600 \;seconds}=x*\frac{meters}{seconds}\)

\(y*\frac{1000 \;meters}{3600 \;seconds}=x*\frac{meters}{seconds}\) --------> \(y=\frac{3600}{1000}*x=\frac{18}{5}*x\)

If the speed of X meters per second is equivalent to the speed of Y kilometers per hour, what is Y in terms of X? (1 kilometer=1000 meters)

We need to find an equation with x in the answer...
convert all measurements so they are alike (i.e. convert km to m, seconds to hours, etc)

Speed = x/t
x meters/second
(3600) x meters/hour

Speed = y/t
y KM/hour
Speed = y(1000m)/hour

y(1000meters)/hour = (3600) x meters/hour

y(1000)/1hour = x(3600) / 1 hour
y(1000) = x(3600)
y = 3.6x

Answer: C. 18x/5

X meters per second -->
--> 3,600X meters per hour (as there are 3,600 seconds in one hour);
--> 3,600X/1,000=18X/5 kilometers per hour (as there are 1,000 meters in one kilometer).

Answer: C.

OR: if you are not comfortable with above manipulations with variable X then you can assume x to be equal to some #: let x=10.

Speed = 10 meters per second -->
--> 10*3,600=36,000 meters per hour -->
--> 36,000/1000=36 kilometers per hour.

So, if x=10, then y=36. Plug x=10 into the answer choices, the one which give 36 will be the correct answer:

Answer: C.

Hi Bunuel,

I'm a lil bit confused here.
If x m/s ≈ y km/hr

I tot it shd be A because
1 km/hr ≈ 1000/3600 m/s
so y ≈ 5/18

Why did you choose the inverse

If the speed of X meters per second is equivalent to the speed of Y kilometers per hour, what is Y in terms of X? (1 kilometer=1000 meters)

In order to avoid the confusion in conversions, lets write this equation in its simplistic format.

\(x * \frac{Meters}{Second} = y * \frac{Kilometers}{Hour}\)

\(x * \frac{Meters}{Second} = y * \frac{Kilometers}{Hour} * \frac{(1000) Meters}{(1) Kilometer} *\frac{(1) Hour}{(60 * 60) Seconds}\)

Cancelling out the units - Kilometers and Hours on the R.H.S.

\(x * \frac{Meters}{Second} = y * \frac{(1000) Meters}{(3600) Seconds}\)

\(x * \frac{Meters}{Second} = y * \frac{(5) Meters}{(18) Seconds}\)

Lets take values in terms of y:

\(y * \frac{Meters}{Seconds} = x * \frac{Meters}{Second}* \frac{18}{5}\)

Which means:

\(y = \frac{18x}{5}\)

Hence, the answer is C

Hope you LIKE this solution, if YES, 1 Kudos Please :cool

The reason is given there.

How did you get your number?

1 meter per second = 3600 meters per hour = 3600/1000 kilometers per hour.

How I got my number is the usual conversion.
1km = 1000m
1hr = 3600 secs

So the rates are
1/1 km/hr = 1000/3600 m/s
= 5/18

That's not correct.

Again, the correct way is: 1 meter per second = 3600 meters per hour = 3600/1000 kilometers per hour.
