    Fourth graders from Ferrisburgh first wanted to know how many seconds it
    would take to cross the Gulf of Mexico. We divided 4 million by 75 and
    got 53,333.33 seconds. Then we divided the seconds by 60 to get the
    minutes. That was 888.88 minutes. Divide the minutes by 60 and you get
    14.18 hours. So, we know that it would take over 14 hours to cross the
    Gulf of Mexico.
