Yes, the car is travelling at 85.5 mph.

#### Explanation:

There is 1600 metres in a mile, and there are 3600 seconds in one hour.

So if you travel at 38 metres per second, that is (38/1600) = 0.02375 miles per second.

And in an hour that would be 3600 x 0.02375 = 85.5 miles.

So the speed is 85.5 miles per hour.
