Okay so this is a simple multiplication problem (for the most part). 

 

If a runner is running at 2.4 m/s what is the distance it will travel in lets say 2 minutes.    <----Second time interval

 

Well first you'd want to convert those minutes into seconds. So there are 120 seconds in 2 minutes.

 

Now into the multiplication,             if for every second the runner is running 2.4 meters then you would multpily 2.4 by however many seconds

 

(2.4) x 120 = 288 meters
