In calculating speed, a person correctly puts 54.235 meters in a calculator (since distance was measured to the nearest millimeter) for distance, and divides that by 13.0 seconds for time (since time was measured to the nearest tenth of a second by a stopwatch). What is the actual speed that should be recorded for these measurements?
