| **The average stride length of an adult is 71 cm. Calculate the distance from home to the nearest bus stop in meters if it is 80 strides.**

To calculate the path from home to the nearest bus stop, it is necessary to calculate the product of the length of one step of an adult and the required number of steps to overcome the given path.

L = l * n, where according to the condition l (length of one step) = 71 cm = 0.71 m; n – required number of steps) = 80.

Let’s do the calculation:

L = 0.71 * 80 = 56.8 m.

Answer: The path from home to the nearest bus stop is 56.8 m.
