Carrey takes three steps to walk the same distance as Jim walks in four steps. Each of Carrey’s steps covers 0.5 metres. How many metres does Jim travel in 24 steps?

so we make the equation (0.5*3)/4*24 and get 3/4=0.75 since 0.75*24=18 and we simplify more to get 0.5*18=9 so the answer is 9 meters

When Carrey takes three steps, he covers 3 x 0.5 meters, or 1.5 meters.

 

Jim takes 4 steps for every three that Carrey takes, so he takes 4 steps to cover 1.5 meters.

1.5 meters divided by 4, gives 0.375 meters per step.

 

When Jim takes 24 steps, he covers 0.375 meters x 24 or 9 meters.
