Ammo Tech challenge questio

#1
On my ammunition technition challenge one question is how far it will take to travel 484km at a speed of 55km per hour. I know it is going to be under 9 hours but can't figure at how many mintures, so I can't say it will be, 8hours and ?? minutes. Is is acceptable to put "It will be just under 9 hours" or something along those line ?

Edit: Never mind, forgot to add in rest break times.

Of course it is acceptable, it makes it easier to weed out the thickos if you can't work it out.

8hrs, 48 minutes.

484/55=8.8

0.1 of an hour = 6 minutes therefore 0.8 = 6 x 8 = 48 minutes.

If you're this shit at maths then I think you need to have a re-think. How'd you even pass the BARB?

Yea but you did that as though the travel speed is 1 mile per minute.
484 km at 55 km/h

Where do miles come into it? And one mile per minute is 60 mph which is not 55 km/h

Speed = Distance / Time therefore Time = Distance / Speed, assuming all units match which they do. No idea where you got 48 or 44 from.

My problem was I was never taught long division at school and my method just kept comming out wrong. So I had to learn it now and now it makes sense.

"Never did long division at school" - says it all about modern education, I presume you must have got an A at GCSE Maths then.

I think lack of "long division" skills might be a problem for an AT

I would like to quote the then 2i/c at the school when I did my preselect.

"Cpl (insert my name here) that is the worst maths score we have ever seen here!"

Look at me know!! hehe

Eddyt, I don't think you need to join the army at all. I think that you need to get your carer to put your hard hat and dribble catcher on you and have them wheel you back to special class.

Humour, wasted on some people.

Look mate it's ******* simple:

The question you were asked was, "how far will it take to travel 484km at a speed of 55kmph?"

Your answer should be "484km" or have you fucked the question up?

Now if you want 'how long will it take to travel 484km at 55kmph' then you need to remember S=D/T D=SxT and T=D/S you need to convert to decimal time. So subtract any whole numbers and then multiply the remainder by 60 to get minutes and repeat to get seconds. Therefore;

484/55=8.8 Hours - 8 = .8 x 60 = 48

8 hrs 48 mins

Are you sure you want to be an Ammunition Technition? Perhaps you are better suited to being a mov con. The same question would look like this

Q.How long does it take to travel 484km at 55kmph?

A. It doesn't because the plane is fucked and we are not telling you why and no you can't leave the airport!

Same for driver

Q.How long does it take to travel 484km at 55kmph?

A.8 days 23 Hours 54mins and 23 seconds, because I will spend exactly 8 hrs 48 min driving and the remaining time researching how much enforced rest I will need in between changing gears and dribbling shit about tyre pressures.

Pet Op?

Q.How long does it take to travel 484km at 55kmph?

BISPISS, you disappoint me. When it came to the Pet Op answer i was hoping for a Benoulli's Equation about to be thrown in. You see AT's, its not just you lot that need Scienterrific Calculators!

CH90210 I would be more than happy to oblige but you haven't stated which equation you would like me to throw in, are we talking uncompressible flows or compressible flows. Quite what differential pressure has to do with speed, time and distance is completely beyond my tiny little mind but I am sure I could link it in there somewhere............

Anyway shouldn't you have revised Torcelli's law prior to a tour of the FI's or am I thinking of someone else??????

Yes you are certainly thinking of someone else. It happened to the person who took over from me (a fair few months after)!!
The man with the lisp, Mr Borough of Liverpool!
