Approximately $0.1819$ miles.

#### Explanation:

We are given the snail's speed in meters per hour $\left(\text{m"/"hr}\right)$ and want it in miles per day ($\text{mi"/"d}$). Thus, we need to convert meters to miles and hours to days. To do so, we will use the following conversions:

• $1 \text{mi" = 1609.344"m}$
• $1 \text{d" = 24 "hr}$

We will use these to cancel the units we don't want and be left with the ones we do.

(12.2color(blue)(cancel("m")))/(1color(red)(cancel("hr")))xx(1"mi")/(1609.344color(blue)(cancel("m")))xx(24color(red)(cancel("hr")))/(1"d")#

$= \frac{12.2 \times 24}{1609.344} \left(\text{mi")/("d}\right)$

$\approx 0.1819 \left(\text{mi")/("d}\right)$

Thus the snail travels approximately $0.1819$ miles in one day.
