You have to run 2.50 miles for gym class. How many meters must you run to be successful?
You need to know a conversion factor to do this problem. The most helpful one is this:
1 mile = 1,609.34 meters
Once we know that, we just need to multiply the number of meters by 2.5.
Note that you may get a different answer based on the number of decimal points used and rounding.
