First, we convert the speed from f/s to mi/hr: \(\displaystyle{\left({76}{f}\frac{{t}}{{s}}\right)}\cdot{\left({1}{m}\frac{{i}}{{5280}}{f}{t}\right)}\cdot{\left({60}\frac{{s}}{{1}}\min\right)}\cdot{\left({60}\frac{\min}{{1}}{h}{r}\right)}\sim{51.82}{m}\frac{{i}}{{h}}{r}\)
So in 3.1 hours, the car will travel: \(\displaystyle{51.82}{m}\frac{{i}}{{h}}\cdot{3.1}{h}\sim{160.6}\) miles

The formula \(\displaystyle{s}=√{18}{d}\) can be used to find the speed s of a car in miles per hour when the car needs d feet to come to a complete stop after stepping on the brakes. If it took a car 25 feet to come to a complete stop after stepping on the brakes, estimate the speed of the car. Truncate the value of \(\displaystyle√{18}{d}\), when d = 25, to the tenths place.

Finance bonds/dividends/loans exercises, need help or formulas
Some of the exercises, calculating the Ri is clear, but then i got stuck:
A security pays a yearly dividend of 7€ during 5 years, and on the 5th year we could sell it at a price of 75€, market rate is 19%, risk free rate 2%, beta 1,8. What would be its price today? 2.1 And if its dividend growths 1,7% each year along these 5 years-what would be its price?
A security pays a constant dividend of 0,90€ during 5 years and thereafter will be sold at 10 €, market rate 18%, risk free rate 2,5%, beta 1,55, what would be its price today?
At what price have i purchased a security if i already made a 5€ profit, and this security pays dividends as follows: first year 1,50 €, second year 2,25€, third year 3,10€ and on the 3d year i will sell it for 18€. Market rate is 8%, risk free rate 0,90%, beta=2,3.

The equation F=−vex(dm/dt) for the thrust on a rocket, can also be applied to an airplane propeller. In fact, there are two contributions to the thrust: one positive and one negative. The positive contribution comes from air pushed backward, away from the propeller (so dm/dt<0), at a speed vex relative to the propeller. The negative contribution comes from this same quantity of air flowing into the front of the propeller (so dm/dt>0) at speed v, equal to the speed of the airplane through the air.
For a Cessna 182 (a single-engine airplane) flying at 130 km/h, 150 kg of air flows through the propeller each second and the propeller develops a net thrust of 1300 N. Determine the speed increase (in km/h) that the propeller imparts to the air.
