# The length of a long rod is measured first by using pace-span and then, by using foot-span of a person. For the person, the length of one pace-span is four times the length of one foot-span. If the length of the rod is 6 pace-spans, then what is the length of the rod in terms of foot-span?

Measuring length means measuring the length of any object with the help of measuring tools like scale, etc.

## Answer: For the person, the length of one pace-span is four times the length of one foot-span. The length of the rod is 6 pace spans, then the length of the rod is 24-foot spans.

Let's calculate the length of the rod in terms of foot span.

**Explanation:**

The length of one pace-span is 4 times the length of one foot-span.

one pace-span = 4 foot-spans

It is given that the length of the rod is 6 pace-spans.

So, 6 pace-spans = 6 × one pace-spans = 6 × (4 foot-spans) = (6 × 4) foot-spans = 24 foot-spans

The length of the rod is 24 foot-spans
