I am having trouble solving this problem. Q  One mile is 5280 feet. Justin has a stride of 32 inches. How many steps will he take to run a 26mile marathon. I tried 5280 x 32 = 168,960 incorrect. 5280 x 26 = 137,280 divided by 32 = 4290 incorrect.5280 divided by 3(3feet)=1760 x 26 = 45,760 incorrect

5,280 * 12 = _____ inches in one mile
Multiply the inches in one mile by 26.
Divide that product by 32.
