#### Work Step by Step

The problem asks for a total. A total is the answer to an addition problem. Therefore, we will add the four numbers (325, 160, 325, 160) which represent the distance around the track.
$325 + 160 + 325 + 160$
Start at the right of each number and add the ones digits
$5 + 0 + 5 + 0 = 10$ ones
Regroup the $10$ ones as $1$ ten and $0$ ones
Write the $0$ ones in the ones column.
Write the $1$ ten in the tens column
Add the tens column next including the regrouped $1$
$1 + 2 + 6 + 2 + 6 = 17$ tens
Regroup the 17 tens as $1$ hundred and $7$ tens
Write the $7$ tens in the tens column.
Write the $1$ hundred in the hundreds column
Add the hundreds column next including the regrouped $1$.
$1 + 3 + 1 + 3 + 1 = 9$ hundreds
Write the $9$ in the hundreds column
$970$
The sum of the three numbers is $970$
The distance is $970$ feet (ft).
