1 pace = 0.9 m

37 paces = x

Cross multiply to get:

x=37*0.9/1=?

When you cross multiply, multiply the complete diagonal (the one occupied by two numbers, i.e. 0.9 and 37) and divide by the number diagonally across from x, i.e. 1.

Similarly,

1 pace = 0.9 m

y paces = 122 m.

Cross multiply to get the answer.
