1 inch = 2.54 cm (exactly)
36 in = 36*2.54 cm = 91.44 cm
1 yard = 36 in = 91.44 cm
220 yds = 220*91.44 cm = 20116.8 cm
1 furlong = 220*91.44 cm = 20116.8 cm

1 fortnight = 14 days
  = 14 days * 24 hr/day = 336 hr
  = 336 hr * 3600 sec/hr
  = 1209600 sec

1 furlong/fortnight = 20116.8 cm / 1209600 sec
399 furlongs/fortnight = (399 * 20116.8 / 1209600) cm/sec
  ≈ 6.636 cm/sec
