$$\frac{1000rotations }{1min}\\\\ =\frac{1000rotations }{60seconds}\\\\ =\frac{50rotations }{3seconds}\\\\ \mbox{Now use the units to help you}\\\\ \frac{360degrees}{rotation}\times \frac{50 rotations}{3 seconds}\\\\ =\mbox{The rotations cancel out leaving you with }\\\\ =\frac{360*50}{3}degrees/second\\\\ =120*50\;degrees/second\\\\ =6000\;degrees/second\\\\$$
