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
