Answer:

#1000ms#

Explanation:

we will deal with the numerical and dimensional parts separately

#(1)" "#numerical part

#60/0.060#

when dividing by a decimal the best approach is to multiply top and bottom by a power of #10# in order to make the denominator a whole number.

#60/0.060xx100/100#

#=6000/6#

#=1000#

#(2) " "#Dimensional part

#(ms^2)/s#

change so that all dimensions are on top.

#=ms^2s^(-1)#

use rules of powers

#=ms^(2+ -1)=ms^1=ms#

put the two together

#=1000ms#
