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
\(Distance=44 \cdot1/4 miles=11 miles\)
