What is 58 meters per minute in meters per second?

We recall that there are 60 seconds in one minute. This means that a speed of 58 meters per minute is the same as 58 meters per 60 seconds. 58 and 60 are both even. Therefore, they are divisible by two. 58 divided by two is 29, and 60 divided by two is 30. This means that 58 meters per minute is the same as twenty-nine thirtieths meters per second. This could be written as a decimal as 0.96 recurring meters per second. As this is a recurring decimal, we would usually leave our answer in fraction form.
