Suppose that humans walk about 10,000 steps per day on average.

Your average step is probably about 18 inches. If so, how many inches per day do you walk?

How Many feet per day do you walk?

How many miles per day do you walk, to the nearest whole number?

Just take these one at a time.

First, if each step is 18 inches and you take 10,000 of them a day, how many inches will you walk? Just multiply these two numbers and you'll have that answer.

Next, since there are 12 inches in a foot, take the number from the first step and divide by 12 to get the feet/day.

Now, since there are 5280 feet in a mile, divide the number you just got by 5280 and round.

Hope this helps!
