    48 mph is probably a more useful unit of measure.

    Tlyn, that's an extremely difficult question as 146 only goes into 1,2, 73 and 146. If you're practising for aptitude or OASC, you're much better using the free speed/distance website. This gives you endless amounts of questions to answer, but it mostly sticks to questions that you'll face at selection. (DM me should you want the link as the forum doesn't seem to like website addresses)

    Key thing to remember is: Speed = distance/time Distance = speed x time Time = distance/speed As well as this, you absolutely need to brush up on your multiplication (1-12 times table minimum) and also your fractions of an hour (this will allow you to work a lot quicker over time) 1/1 = 1 hour 1/2 = 30 mins 1/4 = 15 mins 1/5 = 12 mins 1/6 = 10 mins 1/10 = 6 mins 1/12 = 5 mins 1/15 = 4 mins 1/20 = 3 mins 1/30 = 2 mins 1/60 = 1 minKey thing to remember is:
    Speed = distance/time
    Distance = speed x time
    Time = distance/speed

    As well as this, you absolutely need to brush up on your multiplication (1-12 times table minimum) and also your fractions of an hour (this will allow you to work a lot quicker over time)
    1/1 = 1 hour
    1/2 = 30 mins
    1/4 = 15 mins
    1/5 = 12 mins
    1/6 = 10 mins
    1/10 = 6 mins
    1/12 = 5 mins
    1/15 = 4 mins
    1/20 = 3 mins
    1/30 = 2 mins
    1/60 = 1 min
