Or have ROMOS do the math for you. Did I miss a step in my set up?
ROMOS

Quarter of a "minute"?
Colleen

Nope, I see it. I put 6 seconds in a minute, not 60

Edited after actually reading the question correctly :)

1,100 ft per second.

15 seconds in a quarter of a minute.

1,100 X 15 = ?

Do the math

ROMOS

Only 6 seconds in a minute?
Colleen

Just caught it.
ROMOS

No quarter of an hour in the question.
Colleen

Ugh. For some reason my mind read quarter of an hour. Probably because 1/4 of a minute is not common like 1/4 of an hour.
Colleen

I even read it the same way the second time around.

15 X 4 = 60.So, a quarter of a minute is 15 seconds.So, 15 X 1,100 =16,500'.
