Sep 2, 2017

4,023.35 meters

#### Explanation:

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.

$1609.34 \cdot 2.5 = 4023.35$

Note that you may get a different answer based on the number of decimal points used and rounding.
