Okay first you have to go from miles to ft then to iniches and then to cen? right?

So you put what your trying to find on top.

I'm not going to do this for you so tell me, how many feet are in a mile?

K cool.

first step

3 miles * 5280 ft

1 ft 1 mile.

Now muilitply top times top ( 3 times 5280) and then divide it by the answer at the bottom when u muiltply. (1 times 1)
