The length of the Boston Marathon is 138,435 ft. Each stride, or step, by a particular runner is 3 ft long. Does the number of strides the runner takes fit evenly into the length of the race?
I am lost on this question. Can anyone give me a direction? Do I divide? I am in 6th grade fractions so how does this apply? so confused : (

It's really easy if you are asking a question like that. I am a parent, and in my old days I knew that every grade you learn new and old stuff. Now your teacher is going to be angry and suspicious if I even help. I am so sorry. Bye.

Wait so all I have to do is divide? I thought I had to do a whole lot more. I only went here because I didn't know if there was more than that. Ok then. Is there anything else I have to do after I divide?
