Question from Abigail, a student:

Matthew skateboards 4km each hour.
How long will it take him to skateboard around the school yard measuring 300m by 200m.?
Thank you.

Hi Abigail,

Draw a rough sketch of the school yard and label the length of each side. How far is it in meters all the way around the school? How far is this in meters? Mathew skateboards at 4 km/hr/\. How ling does it take for him to go all the way around the school?
