Calculate Satellite Distance Traveled
Use your math skills to answer the following questions:
A satellite travels 7 million miles, circling the earth 270 times in 18 days (exactly).
How many miles does the satellite travel each time it circles the earth?
How many times does the satellite pass overhead each day?
How fast is the satellite traveling in miles per hour (assume the speed is constant for the entire 18 days)?
How much time does it take for the satellite to travel around the earth once?
How many degrees does the satellite travel across the sky in one minute?
