Calculation: 
To find an equivalent rate, convert from miles per second to miles per minute. To do so, multiply the rate by a conversion factor. There are 60 seconds in 1 minute, so 60 sec1 min=1
300 mi20 sec 
300 mi20 sec×60 sec1 min [Multiply rate by common conversion factor] 
300 mi20sec×60sec1 min [Divide out common factor and unit] 
900 mi1 min [Simplify] 
Therefore, the equivalent rate is 900 miles per minute.

Answer:
900
Step-by-step explanation:
To get your answer, you can just multiply 20 seconds by 3 to get 60 seconds, which is a minute.
Since whatever you do on one side you have to do to the other, multiply 300 mi by 3 as well. That would get you 900.
