First convert 23 minutes to seconds:
 
(23 min)*(60 seconds per minute) = 1380 seconds
 
Now figure out how many requests the ICE exchange processes per second:
 
(65,525)/(1380) ≅ 47.5 requests per second
 
So in 11.3 seconds, ICE can process:
 
(47.5 requests per second)*(11.3 seconds) ≅ 537 requests (rounded)

Nice try but your answer is not correct the correct answer is
 
First convert 23 minutes to seconds:
 
23mins x 60 seconds per minute= 1380
 
1380 seconds + 15 seconds = 1395
 
65,525 / 1395= 46.97 request per second
 
so in 11.3 seconds, Ice can process:
 
46.97 x 11.3 seconds =530.76
 
rounded the the nearest whole number the answer is 
 
Ice can process 531 request in 11.3 seconds
