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
