Go Walk Mathematics
Go Walk Mathematics Suppose you walk 3 kms a day for 40 years. 3 kms x 365 days = 1,095 kms. forget the 95 kms. 1,000 kms x 40 years = 40,000 kms 40,000 kms = the length of the terrestrial equator Therefore Walking 3 kms a day for 40 years You complete the circuit of the earth. Suppose you walk 30 kms a day for 36 years. 30 kms x 365 days = 10,950 kms. 10,950 kms x 36 years = 394,200 kms This figure goes beyond the average distance Between the earth & the moon 384,400 kms. Therefore Walking 30 kms a day for 36 years You reach the moon.
