At the rate of y yards per m minutes, how many yards does a swimmer travel in x hours?

A. \(\frac{y}{mx}\)

B. \(\frac{yx}{m}\)

C. \(\frac{60y}{mx}\)

D. \(\frac{60ym}{x}\)

E. \(\frac{60xy}{m}\)

We can write this in W = RT formula

let work be Y and T be m minutes then rate (R) = Y/m.

Now question asks us to find the answer in terms of Y in x hours of time.

As per our analysis , Y = RT, we got R from above

now sub R value in above equation then Y = ( Y/m) T

We have m in minutes and T as in hours then convert this into minutes T = 60x

=> Y(60x) / m.

E.
