This problem can be solved by division because division means distributing things evenly into some pieces.

 

Total is 1/4 of a mile and there are 4 people.

 

Therefore each person needs to run for : \(\dfrac{1}{4}\text{miles}\div 4 = \dfrac{1}{4}\text{miles}\times \dfrac{1}{4} = \dfrac{1}{16}\text{miles}\)
