The record for the race in Problem 38 is 10 minutes, 47 seconds. What was the racer’s speed in min/mi for the race?
Each spring there is a race up 86 floors of the 102-story Empire State Building in New York City. If you were able to climb 2 steps/second, how long would it take you to reach the 86th floor if each floor is 14 ft. high and each step is about 9 in.?
