Question

# Carlos ran 4 times around a circular track. If one circuit measures 1.2km. Determine the total distance ran by him in __________ meters.

## 4000    4800    2300    2500 Hint:

## The correct answer is: 4800

### The given value of the length of the circuit is 1.2 km.No of circuits ran by Carlos is 4.So, we can write the total distance ran by him asTotal distance = no of circuits × length of a circuit= 4 × 1.2 km= 4.8 kmThe total distance ran by Carlos is 4.8 km.But we are asked for the distance in meters. So we will need to convert the given distance into meters. To convert the given distance into meters, we should know the relation between kilometers and meters1 kilometer = 1000 metersTo convert 4.8 km into meters, we will have to multiply the quantity by 1000.So, we get4.8 km = 4.8 × 1000 meters= 4800 metersTherefore, the distance ran by Carlos in meters is 4800.

For such questions, we should know about the different units and relation between them.
