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:

### We are given that Carlos runs 4 times in a circular path. We are given the length of one circuit is 1.2km. We are asked to find the total distance ran by him in meters. First, we will calculate the complete distance. Then we will convert the units.

## 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 as

Total distance = no of circuits × length of a circuit

= 4 × 1.2 km

= 4.8 km

The 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 meters

1 kilometer = 1000 meters

To convert 4.8 km into meters, we will have to multiply the quantity by 1000.

So, we get

4.8 km = 4.8 × 1000 meters

= 4800 meters

Therefore, the distance ran by Carlos in meters is 4800.

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