Answer:

72.48 mph

Explanation:

32.4 metres per second will be #xx# 3600 for per hour. (#xx# 60 each for minutes, then hour)

#:. = 32.4*60*60 = 116,640# m/h

Then to get into km divide by 1000 (I'm going through kilometres because I don't understand miles)

#116640/1000#= 116.64km/h

To convert km in to miles you add half your km to a quarter of that (or multiply original number by 5/8)
Or you use a conversion calculator.

116.64 #-:#2 = 58.32
58.32 #-:# 4 = 14.58
14.58+58.32 = 72.9 which is close enough
