I am working on word problems and trying to figure this one out and need help.
One mile is 5280 feet. Justin has a stride of 32 inches. How many steps will he take to run a 26 mile marathon?
5280 x 26 = 137,280 and I am stuck.

1. You have calculated the number of feet in 26 miles.

Now divide that by (32/12), the number of feet in one stride.

Or, you can multiply 137280 by 12 to get the number of inches in 26 miles, and then divide that by 32, the number of inches in one stride. Same difference.
