A 120-VHS Memorex videotape contains 246 meters of tape. When played at standard speed (SP), it will play for 120 minutes. What is the rate of play of the tape?
Answer to the nearest whole number.


The answer:

Rate of play = length/time

Rate of play = 246 meters/120 minutes

Rate of play = 2.05 meters per minute

Rounded to the nearest whole number

Rate of play = 2 meters per minute


The final answer is: 2 meters per minute
