Sabrina is a sprinter who has a running stride of about 150cm.
If Sabrina's sprinting workout consists of running practice races of 40 stride,how many metres is each race.

You are given the centimeters per stride and the number of strides. How many centimeters does this give? (Hint: Multiply.)

How many centimeters are in one meter? (Review here if you're not sure.)

Then how many meters are in that many centimeters? (Hint: Divide, or just move the decimal point.)

150 * 40 =6000
100cm = 1 metre
6000/100 = 60
