1 min/60 sec

60 min/1 hr

12 in/1 ft

1 ft/12 in

[tex]\frac{inch}{sec}=5 feet/sec[/tex]

Step-by-step explanation:

We have to change

inches / second into feet /min

and we know that

[tex]1 inch=\frac{1}{12}feet[/tex]

[tex]1 sec=\frac{1}{60}min[/tex]

now, we can replace these values

[tex]\frac{inch}{sec}=\frac{\frac{1}{12} }{\frac{1}{60} } feet/sec[/tex]

now, we can simplify it

[tex]\frac{inch}{sec}=\frac{1\times 60 }{12\times 1} feet/sec[/tex]

[tex]\frac{inch}{sec}=5 feet/sec[/tex]

Option 1 and 4 are correct.

Step-by-step explanation:

To find : To convert inches per second to feet per minute, which of the following conversion factors would be used?

Solution :

To convert inches per second to feet per minute, we use the conversion

1 feet = 12 inches

1 inches = [tex]\frac{1}{12}[/tex] feet.

1 minute = 60 seconds

1 second = [tex]\frac{1}{60}[/tex] minute.

i.e. option 1 and 4 are correct.

Applying conversions,

[tex]\frac{\text{inches}}{\text{second}}=\frac{\frac{1}{12}\text{ feet}}{\frac{1}{60}\text{ minute}}[/tex]

[tex]\frac{\text{inches}}{\text{second}}=\frac{60}{12}\frac{\text{ feet}}{\text{ minute}}[/tex]

[tex]\frac{\text{inches}}{\text{second}}=5\frac{\text{ feet}}{\text{ minute}}[/tex]

[tex]1min=60sec[/tex]

[tex]1feet =12 inch[/tex]

Step-by-step explanation:

Since, we have to change

inches / sec to feet/ min

It means that

we have to change

inches to feet

and sec to min

we know that

[tex]1min=60sec[/tex]

and

[tex]1feet =12 inch[/tex]

so, we will use these two factors only

Answer would be:

1ft/12in and 60sec/1min

Step-by-step explanation:

First think of the units that you are converting separately:

inches → feet

seconds → minute

So you need to find the units that match those.

Now let's look at the units as a whole:

[tex]\dfrac{inches}{second}\:\rightarrow\dfrac{feet}{minute}[/tex]

Now the trick in converting is whatever you are trying to cancel out, you put the factor on top. Since you want to cancel out seconds, you will need to make sure that the conversion factor you will has seconds on top.

For the inches to feet, since inches is what you need to cancel out, then use the conversion factor that has inches in the bottom.
