the answer key says 3445 yards therefore i am extremely confused

4. BaileyC

mb a typo?? or is the calculation wrong

5. Mertsj

And: |dw:1326673121747:dw|

6. Mertsj

What conversion factor were you given? It could be in the rounding.

7. BaileyC

yeah but the way you did it and i didi it the same way is completely off of the answer

8. mathmate

1 inch = 0.0254 m exactly so 1 foot = 0.3048 m exactly 1 yard = 3' = 0.9144 m exactly From 3180 m to yards, divide 3180 by 0.9144 From 3180 m to feet, divide 3180 by 0.9144 and multiply by 3. Note: 3180m= 3477.690289.... yd is the correct answer.

o ok i just dont get why the key said it was 3445 yards then. i am so confuzzled

10. Mertsj

Because the key is wrong or you copied the problem wrong.

Perhaps the answer key is wrong, perhaps you had a typo in the question. Is the question 3180m or 3150m????

13. BaileyC

3180

14. mathmate

The answer key is for 3150, whatever the reason.

15. BaileyC

o ok makes sense
