It is given that the top speed of a coyote is 44 miles/hour. We have to find the distance cover by the coyote in 15 minutes time.
Let us recall the formula.
$$Distance =Speed \times Time$$
In our case $$Time=15$$ minute minute and $$Speed =44$$ miles/hour. Let us convert the time into an hour format. We know that
$$60 minute=1 hour$$
This gives us

$$1 minute=1/60​ hour \Rightarrow 15 minute=(1​/60) \times 15 hour=1/4​ hour$$

Hence the distance cover by the coyote in 15 minutes time is given by

$$Distance=44 \cdot1/4 miles=11 miles$$
