A marathon is a road race covering 26 miles and 385 yards. There are 5280 feet in amile, 3 feet in a yard and 3.3 feet in a meter. How many meters is this? (4.2x10^6m)

• changing dimensions -

The answer is not 4.2 million meters, either. That would be a coast to coast race.

If you want an accurate answer, you'd better use the correct number of feet in a meter (3.28084), not 3.3.

26 miles 385 yards is 46145 yards or 138,435 feet. Divide that by the number of feet in a meter.
