(133) miles/hr x (1/60) hr/min x (1/60) min/sec x (5280) ft/miles

= 195.07 feet/sec

$\frac{133 miles}{1 hour} *$$\frac{5,280 feet}{1 mile} =$$\frac{5,280 feet}{1 hour} *$$\frac{1 hour}{3,600 seconds}$

133 * 5,280 * 1 = 702,240 feet

1 * 1 * 3,600 = 3,600 seconds

$\frac{702,240 feet}{3,600 seconds} / 3,600 =$$\frac{195.067 feet}{1 second}$
