right, your ego. So for this, probably of, ah, woman who survived the fall of six miles, 500 51 yards. So that is a very large distance. We're gonna convert that old two meters. So first, what we have is one meter. Excuse me. One mile is he would have 1600 and 9.3 meters. We're gonna convert these six miles right here, Um, six miles into meters. We're gonna do that by six miles. What's what? 16 year old, 9.3 meters. Your brother will buy one mile. That is gonna give us our unit conversion right there. Then it's gonna equal 9655 0.8 meters. All right, We need to add that to the number of yards converted two meters, so one herd is equal to zero point line, one for meters. So if we have 551 yards, um, it's another way we could think about this is multiplying side of this equation. The side in this side by 551. Right? Um, that is going to give us up. 500 and three point six meters. All right, so I know you have Meteors here, and I'm yours here, and we just need to add those together, get our final answer. When we do that, we're going to get 10,000 159 meters. You know, we got that by adding, uh, this number right here, Do this number in here. That will be our final answer right there. All right. Thank you so much for watching and have a great date.
