21 pedal strokes

Work Step by Step

First convert 357 inches to feet $357 in = 29.75 ft$ Set up a proportion to find $x$ pedal strokes $\frac{6}{29.75}=\frac{y}{100}$ Write the cross products $6(100)=29.75y$ Simplify $600=29.75y$ Divide both sides by 29.75 $\frac{600}{29.75}=\frac{29.75y}{29.75}$ Simplify $20.168=y$ About $21$ pedal strokes
