1/ 8 x 60 = 480 jumps per minute
2/ 2.2 x 8 x 60 x 24 = 25, 344 cm per day
3/ 200 / 100 x 15 = 30 cm
4/ 3 x 24 x 7 = 504
5/ 3 : 4 : 6 : 8
6/ 25 / 100 x 67 = 16.75 g
7/ 6 / 3 x 2 = 4 cm
8/ high jump : long jump : javelin : shot put = 2 : 4 : 3 : 5
9/ 34/200 ; 17 % ; 0.17 ; 34 : 200
10/ 8 x 2 = 16 ; 1/2 ; 50% ; 0.5 ; 8 : 16
11/ 60 x 24 = 1140 / 3 = 480
12/ 3.6 / 8 = 0.45 m = 45 cm
