Answer:99miles is more likely correct

or 114miles as knots is usually higher mileage

Step-by-step explanation:70^2 + 70^2 = c^2

sqrt 4900 + sqrt 4900 = c^2

sq rt 9800 = c^2 = 98.9949494

99 x 1.1507794480225 = 113.927165 = 114miles if converted to 80.6m/ph

70 Knots is equivalent to 80.554561361578 Miles/Hour. How to convert from Knots to Miles/Hour The conversion factor from Knots to Miles/Hour is 1.1507794480225. To find out how many Knots in Miles/Hour, multiply by the conversion factor or use the Velocity converter.
