Problem
NASA’s Perseverance Rover was launched on July After traveling miles, it landed on Mars in Jezero Crater about months later. Which of the following is closest to the Rover’s average interplanetary speed in miles per hour?
Solution 1
Note that months is approximately hours. Therefore, the speed (in miles per hour) is As the answer choices are far apart from each other, we can ensure that the approximation is correct.

Solution 2
Note that miles. We also know that months is approximately hours. Now, we can calculate the speed in miles per hour, which we find is about ~MathFun1000
Remark
This problem is a great example of a situation where rounding all the numbers to ones we can easily work with is an excellent first step. In any competitive timed test, especially the AMC, if you see problems that require you to choose answers that are the closest, this is a sign to you that you can speed through this problem and move on quickly.
