Best Answer

1 furlong = 1/8 mile

1 minute = 1/60 hour

→ 1 furlong/min = 1 × (1/8 mile)/(1/60 hour)

= 1 × 60/8 mph

= 7.5 mph

Yes, one furlong per minute is the same speed as 7.5 miles per hour. A furlong is equal to 1/8th of a mile, so if you travel 7.5 miles in one hour, that is equivalent to covering 60 furlongs in 60 minutes, which simplifies to one furlong per minute.
