The boat covered 80 km in 2 hours. What is its speed, expressed in meters per minute?

To solve the problem, let’s express the hours in minutes and km in meters.
1 km 1000 meters, which means:
80 km = 80,000 m.
In 1 hour 60 minutes, it means:
2 * 60 = 120 minutes.
The boat covered 80,000 m in 120 minutes, its speed is:
80000: 120 = 4000/6 = 2000/3 (m / min).
Answer: The speed of the boat is 2000/3 m / min.
