Gustave measured his pace and determined that for him, s steps make up one mile. One day Gustave walked 6300 steps, which was 3 miles.

Write an equation to describe this situation. How many steps are in one mile for Gustave?

 

( I couldn' figure out how to write the equation...)

 

Please help asap! Btw srry that I'm asking so many questions, Lol!

You can set up a proportion:  steps / miles  =  steps / miles

                                                  s    /    1      =   6300 /     3

If you cross=multiply, you can turn this into an equation:

                                                               3·s  =  6300·1

or:                                                            3s  =  6300
