## Homework Statement

19. A wind turbine generates 6000 kWh of electricity on a day when the wind speed was 3 meters per second for 24 hours. If the wind speed was 9 meters per second for 24 hours, how many kWh of electricity will be generated?

a. 12,000 kWh b. 18,000 kWh c. 54,000 kWh

**d. 162,000 kWh**

*This question is way below precalc, but I figured this is the best place to ask... Didn't want to bother the engineering thread... :/

## Homework Equations

Basic math...

## The Attempt at a Solution

Ok, I feel like a complete idiot for not understanding this, what appears to be, a very simple math problem... Why is this not as simple as doing a ratio...

6000/3 = x/9

==> x=18,000kWh.

But the answer is somehow 162,000 kWh according to the answer key. Why is that the answer and why am I so dumb?
