  1. 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.
