Ratio & Conversion to Time?

I ran 3.6 miles in 35 minutes and 40 seconds. What is my average for MPH ran? I think: I divide 3.6/35 but i don't know the rest.

      3.6 (60 / 35 2/3) = 6.05607477 mph

    35 min x 1h/60 min + 40 s x 1min/60s x 1hr/60 min 

    = 0.5833 + 0.01111

    =0.59411 h

    solving for average speed.

    v = d/t = 3.6 miles / 0.59411 h =6.06  mph   answer//

    35m40s=2140s/3600=.5944h

    3.6/.5944=6.06MPh

    Here, we must convert miles per (minutes & seconds) to

    miles per hour.;

    1) 35 min & 40 sec = (35 + 40/60) min  = (35 + 2/3) min =

    (107/3) min.;

    2) 1 min = (1/60) hr;

    3) 3.6 miles in 35 min & 40 sec = 3.6 miles in (107/3) min

    = 3.6 miles in (107/3)(1/60)hr = 3.6 miles per (107/180)hr

    = 3.6(180/107)miles per hr  = 6.056074766 mph or 6.1 mph

    roughly.

    First convert the minutes and seconds to hours. 

    40 sec = 40/60 = 2/3 min

    (35 2/3) / 60 = (107/3) / 60 = 107/180 hours. 

    Hence 

    speed (MpH) = 3.6 miles/ (107/180) hours

    speed = 3.6 x 180 / 107 = 6.056 mph. 

    NB The fastest humans ; those doing 100 metres in less than 10 secs are only doing about 36 km per hr. ~ 24 mph.

    = 3.6 miles in [35 min + 40 s]

    = 3.6 miles in [(35 * 1 min) + 40 s] → recall: 1 min = 60 s

    = 3.6 miles in [(35 * 60 s) + 40 s]

    = 3.6 miles in [2100 s + 40 s]

    = 3.6 miles in [2140 s] → recall: 1 h = 3600 s

    =    x miles in [3600 s] → you make the cross-multiply

    x * 2140 = 3.6 * 3600

    x = 3.6 * 3600 / 2140

    x = 3.6 * 360 / 214

    x = 3.6 * 180 / 107

    x = 648 / 107

    x ≈ 6.05 miles in 3600 s

    x ≈ 6.05 miles in 1 h

    x ≈ 6.05 mph

    suppose you took 36 min to run 3.6 mile

    that means 0.1 mile/min = 6 mile per hour.

    now

    3.6 mile / (35*60+40)sec = 3.6 mile/(2140)sec

    in 2140 sec 3.6 mile covered

    in 60*60 sec distance covered=3.6*3600/2140=6.056

    avg speed = 6.056 mph

    35 minutes and 40 seconds => 2140 seconds

    1 hour => 3600 seconds

    Hence, 2140/3600 hours => 107/180

    so, 3.6 miles in (107/180) hours

    Therefore, 3.6(180/107) => 6.06 m.p.h.

    35 mins 40 seconds/60 = 2140 seconds

    3.6/2140 = 0.012622 - that's miles per second

    0.126622 x 60 = 0.1009345 - miles per minute

    0.1009345 x 60 = 6.056 miles per hour
