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.

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?

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.
