Pussy Cat, Pussy Cat, Where Have You Been ?

Pussy cat, pussy cat, where have you been ? I’ve been to London to visit the Queen. Pussy cat, pussy cat, what did you there ?I frightened the little mouse under her chair. But when the cat was away, the mice came out to play … Soon there was havoc everywhere, with mice running on top of the table and on every chair. One of the mice ran up the wall, no – one has since seen him (perhaps he had a fall ?). Another mouse ran on top of the picture frame, the maid called him, but she didn’t know his name. A mouse ran across the bookshelf, too and all over the fireplace was like a mouse zoo.  One of the mice ran up the Queen’s skirt, it tickled her so much, that it really hurt ! cat-8.jpg1. If the mouse ran at a speed of 15 m / minute, how long did it take the mouse to run 100 m around from downstairs to upstairs ?
