waecmaths question: 

If $x\text{ }km{{h}^{-1}}=y\text{ }m{{s}^{-1}}$ then y =

Option A: 

$\tfrac{7}{18}x$

Option B: 

$\tfrac{11}{20}x$

Option C: 

$\tfrac{4}{15}x$

Option D: 

$\tfrac{5}{18}x$

waecmaths solution: 

$\begin{align}  & x\text{ }km{{h}^{-1}}=y\text{ }m{{s}^{-1}} \\ & 1000m=1km \\ & 3600s=1h \\ & \frac{x\times 1000}{3600}=\frac{5x}{18}m{{s}^{-1}} \\ & \frac{5x}{18}m{{s}^{-1}}=ym{{s}^{-1}} \\ & y=\frac{5x}{18} \\\end{align}$
