Setting Up Equations

Hi, I need assistance setting up an equation for this problem:
Problem: If a satellite orbits the earth at a velocity of 3.2x10 to the fourth power km/hr, this would be the same as how many ft/min?

Solution Preview

First step: (3.2x10^4 km/hr)(hr/60 min) = answer in km/min

Second step: We need to know the conversion between feet and kilometers. This is it:
1 ...
