Rachel says that when she ran 115 yards she went farther than Beth who only ran 227 ft. Rachel is correct
Given that , Rachel says that when she ran 115 yards she went farther than Beth who only ran 227 ft.
We have to remember that when 1 yard equals 3 ft.
Yes, what Rachel said is correct, let us see how it became correct
In normal view, 115 < 227 but here units are different.
Remember that, for any comparison between two things, we have to take the things in same units.
Let us convert 115 yards to feet:
Now, 345 feet > 227 feet
Which means, Distance covered by Rachel > Distance covered by Beth
Thus Rachel ran more than Beth. Hence, Rachel is correct.
