Hint: First we have to define what the terms we need to solve the problem are.
Since Bunky has been walked $3000$ feet in $10$ minutes, we can now convert that minutes into the seconds, so that the required resultant answer is needed in the seconds only; hence converting minutes into seconds is one minute is equals sixty seconds that is $1\min = 60\sec$ . The given question is finding the walking for the $10$ seconds at the same rate only.

Since we used the conversion technique for the minutes into seconds now, we will convert the $10$ minutes into the seconds which is $10\min = (60 \times 10)\sec$ further solving we get; $10\min = 600\sec$
Now let Bunky walk $3000$ feet in $10$ minutes which is $600$ seconds, now we will need to find at the same rate, how many feet that bunky has walked in only $10$ seconds.
Since as we already know for $600$ seconds the feet she walked so now we will need to find for same rate at $10$ seconds, hence we will use the formula of the division which is dividend by divisor givens as the quotient, that means; $\dfrac{{600}}{{60}} = 10$ (six hundred is he travelled $3000$ feet and ten seconds that we need to find hence I get it by dividing the term sixty)
Thus, dividing the term $60$ will give as the result which is $3000$ feet for ten seconds is $\dfrac{{3000}}{{60}} = 50$
Note: we can also able to solve this problem using the speed formula that is $speed = \dfrac{{dis\tan ce}}{{time}}$ Speed is the one that we will need to find it for the ten seconds and distance three thousand feet also the time given is ten minutes;
Since there is no possibility of getting options like $B)$ $70$ , $C)$ $40$ , $D)$ $30$ because if we divide correctly using the formula the only answer getable is option A. as fifty
