Hi Megan;

distance=(rate)(time)

distance=(27.6 meters/second)(8.1 seconds)

The unit of seconds is in the numerator and denominator. Therefore, these cancel...

distance=(27.6 meters/second)(8.1 seconds)

distance=(27.6 meters)(8.1)

Now that the units are aligned, we may calculate.

distance=223.56 meters

Distance = Speed * Time

D = (27.6 m/s) * (8.1s)

D = (27.6 * 8.1) * (m*s/s)

D = 223.56 m
