If you had an army of your clones on each others heads, about how many would you need to reach the moon? Hint: make sure you use the same units when comparing your height to the distance to the moon. My height is 5'6". The distance between Earth and the Moon is 385,000 kilometers. How would I go about solving this?

    You are 1.6764m tall. I don't know how many sig figs your teacher wants so use however many decimals you want. Convert the Km to m by way of the good ol' KHDMDCM method (Moving the decimal) and then simply divide. Hope that helped!
