  8. You find a 10,000,000 year old rock 2,500 km away from the nearest seafloor spreading center, how fast has the plate been moving since its formation? Give answer in cm/yr. (Hint: 1 km = 100,000 cm)
  9. You find a rock 7,500 km away from the nearest seafloor spreading center. The plate is spreading at 5 cm/year, how old is the rock? Give answer in years. (Hint: 100,000 cm = 1 km)
  10. You find a 2,400,000 year old rock formation on a plate that is spreading at 12 cm/year, how far is the rock formation from the spreading center? Give answer in kilometers. (Hint: 100,000 cm = 1 km)
