distance2=42.195;
time2= 2+(1/60)+(39/3600);
marathon=distance2/time2

distance2=42.195*1000;
time2=(2*60*60)+(01*60)+39;
marathon=distance2*18/(time2*5);
disp(marathon);

Why are you converting to degrees Farhenheit ?

Speed is number of kilometers travelled divided by number of hours spent travelling. But you would have known that from the definition of speed, and that is not a MATLAB question.

Yes you're right

Question 1
Track_distance_in_km=100./1000;
Time_in_h=9.58./3600;
hundred=Track_distance_in_km./Time_in_h
Question 2
Time_2nd_question=(2.*60.*60)+(01.*60)+39;
Distance_2nd=42.195.*1000;
marathon=(Distance_2nd.*18)./(Time_2nd_question.*5);

y=0.1/9.58;
hundred=y*3600
x=42.195/((121*60)+39);
marathon=x*3600

distance_in_km = 100./1000;
time_in_h = 9.58 / (60. * 60);
hundred = distance_in_km / time_in_h;
disp(hundred);
Time_2nd_question=(2.*60.*60)+(01.*60)+39;
Distance_2nd=42.195.*1000;
marathon=(Distance_2nd.*18)./(Time_2nd_question.*5);
disp(marathon);
