# PLEASE SOLVE I BEG U!!!

If you run a 10 kilometer race in 42 minutes 42 seconds, what is your average pace (time per mile in minutes and seconds)? What is your average speed in miles per hour? Please show me the instructions and explanations, I am an absolute beginner.

If you have code to show, we will know this is programming related and can help troubleshoot better.

This is a simple and direct mathematics question. Note that: Average speed = Total Distance Covered / Total Time Taken = 10 km / (42 min + 42 sec) = 10 km / ((42*60 + 42) sec) = 10000 m / 294 sec = (10000/294) m/sec And, by the way, it was not very related to programming!

That's fine. Adding "Python" to this post's tags should help attract the right kind of attention. Go ahead and show us your syntax error. Providing a link to your Code Playground code helps us help you troubleshoot the specific issues you are running into. The Code Playground should be relatively easy to find in the website version of SoloLearn, but if you are in the app version, it can be accessed via the curly braces, green circle with plus sign to add a new project, then select the project type. Looking forward.

Pretty close, Naveen Maurya ! :) Hmm, I think having a good understanding of units and conversion is important here. The question provides distance in kilometers and time in minutes and seconds. However, it asks for distance in miles (not meters, which would've been easier) and time first in minutes and seconds, then in hours. https://code.sololearn.com/c62d3jX2qMEP/?ref=app You can check my work -- see if I did it right.

So far, I'm not seeing why that would be an obstacle.
