 Question 39049This question is from textbook Harcourt math Practice workbook : I need help on changing linear units. Can you help me solve this problem:3,520yd =____miThis question is from textbook Harcourt math Practice workbook Found 2 solutions by checkley71, stanbon:Answer by checkley71(8403)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!1760 YDS=1 MILE THEN 3520/1760=X/1 OR 1760X=3520 OR X=3520/1760 OR 2 MILES Answer by stanbon(57395)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!3,520yd =____mi You need to know that 1 mile = 1760 yds. Divide both sides by 1760 to get 1 yd = (1/1760)mile Multiply both sides by 3520 to get: 3520yds = 3520(1/1760)miles 3520 yds = 2 miles Cheers, Stan H.
