Apr 12, 2016

A mile makes $2754 \frac{18}{23}$ steps

#### Explanation:

For this one needs to know number of inches in a mile.

As each mile has $1760$ yards and each yard has $3$ feet and each feet has $12$ inches.

Hence one mile has $1760 \times 3 \times 12 = 63360$ inches.

As one stride is of $23$ inches,

number of steps to make a mile is $\frac{63360}{23} = 2754 \frac{18}{23}$
