5000 meters would be 12.5 laps around an Olympic size (400 meters) track.

400 square feet = 37.16 square meters.

400 decimeters. 1 meter equals 10 decimeters.

The 4 x 800 meters relay is an athletics track event in which teams comprise four runners who each complete 800 meters or 2 laps on a standard 400 meter track.

The metric system is cool because it's base 10. A kilometer is 1000 meters (kilo=1000) so 0.4 kilometers is 400 meters.

An indoor track is set to be 200 meters, or 8 laps for a mile. An outdoor track is set at 400 meters , or 4 laps per mile.

No, one mile is 1600 meters, (4 laps, each lap being 400 meters; 400*4=1600).

The distance of one lap around a standard track is typically 400 meters.

A standard running track is 400 meters, so 2 laps is practically half a mile, and 4 laps is 9 meters shy of one mile. (1 mile = 1,609.344 meters)

If you are dealing with a standard U.S. quarter mile lap, each lap is approximately 400 meters.

If a running track lap is 1/4 of a mile a run of 440 miles would take 440*4 = 1760 laps of the track.

That would be 20.5 miles. How? A lap is 400 meters and a miles is 1600 meters. Dividing 1600 by 400 meters is 4 laps per mile. Now I divide 82 by 4 and I get 20.5 miles.

It appears there is a different opinion on this subject. The answer you get all depends on who you ask. There are 1760 yards in a mile. In a 25 yard pool (one length), 50 yards (2 lengths) equals one lap. When you divide 1760 yards by 50 yards that equals 35.2 laps. Some like to round down and insist 35 laps = one mile, but there are others that like to round up and insist 36 laps = one mile. In a 500 yard swim race, a lap is equal to 25 yards. There are 20 laps in the race, or if a lap is considered to be 50 yards as shown above then there would be 10 laps in the race. 1760 yards in a mile divided by 500 yards = 3.52. If you take 3.52 and multiply it by 10 laps that also = 35.2. So, I guess if you want to go that extra lap you could do 36, or compromise and do 35 laps and then one 25 yard length. I would say that is a fair compromise to the question of 1 mile being equal to 35 or 36 laps. If however you are asking about a running track the answer is 4 laps for a standard 400m (440 yard) and 8 laps (220 yards) for a standard indoor trackIt depends on the length of the lap.Modern running laps are 400 meters, and in that case one mile is:(1 mile) * (1609.344 meters / mile) / (400 meters / lap) = 4.02336 laps.

1 Lap is 400 meters. 4km is equal to 4000m. 4000÷400=10 so 10 laps would equal 4 Km.

the distance around a track is 400 meters. which is 1/4 of a mile. 4 laps around the track is 1600 meters which is very close to a mile. the mile is 1609.344 meters.

1 lap is 400 meters, 2 laps are 800 meters, 3 laps is 1200 meters, 4 laps is 1600 meters and 5 laps is 2000 meters. 2000 meters also equals about 1.25 miles
