This one is simple. The problem tells us that the car is moving at 124 meters per second. The question is how long it will take for the object to move exactly one meter. So we start off by the given: 1) Object is moving at 124 meters per second. 2) We shall now divide 1 by 124. The reason for this step is because we want to know how long it will take for ONE meter. 3) We get 1 / 124 4) Simplify to get about 0.008 of a second. Hope this helped! __________________________________________________ __________________________________________________ ____________________________________________ [color=#FF0000]Impossible is just a word that quitters say to make them feel better about themselves.[/color]

Just use 3 / 124 instead of 1 /124. May I ask what grade you're in?
