    Answer:

    Speed of the cheetah is 300 miles per hour

    Explanation:

    As we know that the speed is defined as the ratio of distance and time

    here we know that Cheetah runs a total distance of d = 5 miles

    also the time taken by the cheetah is

    t = 60 s

    now we have

    t = \frac{60}{3600} = \frac{1}{60} hrs

    so here we have

    v = \frac{d}{t}

    v = \frac{5}{1/60}

    v = 300 mph
