#### Practice Question 1

The map below shows Mary's route. Let us use it to answer the question below:

Mary cycled from school to the shop through home. What distance did she cover?

##### Answer:

**Mary cycled 7 km 100 m.**

#### Answer Hint:

- Start from the right: 600 m + 500 m = 1 100 m

- Convert 1 100 m to km: You get **1 km** 100 m

- Write the 100 in the metres column and carry the **1 km** into the kilometres column.

- Lastly, calculate: 4 km + 2 km + **1 km** = 7 km.
