First we need to express Aneesha's speed in feets per second, subtract 3 feets from that, than convert it back to miles per hour and compare with given possible answers. 50 miles/hour = 50 * 5280/3600 = 73.3333 feet/second 3 feets per second slower than that is: 70.3333 feet/second Now to conver that back in miles / hour 70.3333 * 3600/5280 = 47.95 Closest answer is 48 miles per hour.
