    The steps below show the work of a student used to calculate the number of yards in 804.5 meters. (1 mile = 1,609 meters) (1 mile = 1,760 yards) Step 1: 1,609 meters is being multiplied by conversion factor 1 mile over 804.5 meters equals 2 miles Step 2: 2 miles is being multiplied by conversion factor 1760 yards over 1 mile equals 3,520 yards Step 3: 3,520 yards (1 mile = 1,609 meters) (1 mile = 1,760 yards) How can the error in the student's work be corrected? The 1,609 meters and the 804.5 meters in Step 1 should be switched. The 1 mile and 804.5 meters in Step 1 should be switched. The conversion factor should be added in Step 2 instead of being multiplied. The conversion factor should be divided in Step 2 instead of being multiplied.
