our question states. How much longer in percentage is one mile a one mile race than a 1,500 meter race when one mile is actually one metric mile? Okay, so the question is, what is the percentage difference, which I write as per cent Delta D, between one metric mile and 15 in a 1,500 meter race? Okay, well, first thing we're going to do is convert miles into meters because we want to compare like variables. So one mile is equal to 1.61 times 10 to the third meters, which is equal to 1,000 600 in 10 meters. Therefore, the difference between the two or till two D is equal to 1,000 610 meters. Thank you minus. It's in units of meters minus 1,500 meters. Oh, that gives us 110 meters. So our difference or Delta D, is 110 meters to find the percent difference. We need to take the ratio of Delta D, too, the 1,500 meter race. That means we need to take 110 meters divided by 1,500 meters unless the person she could ask for in person there's this point reprint tonight, King him
