A small turtle moves at a speed of 399 furlongs per fortnight. Find the speed of the turtle in centimeters per second. Note that 1 furlong = 220 yards and1 fortnight = 14 days.

1 furlong = 220 yards

1 yards = 0.9144 meters

1 meter = 100 cm

and

1 fortnight = 14 days

1 day = 24 hours

1 hours = 3600 seconds

therefore, 

399 furlong per fortnight = (399*220*0.9144*100) / (14*24*3600)

 = 8026603 cm / 1209600 seconds

speed of turtle = 6.63575 cm /seconds
