Lexie wants to have a heel-toe race with her older brother Josh and her sister Hannah. She says, “My feet are smaller so I should only have to go a shorter distance than you two.” Her sister says, “that makes sense. Let’s race our ages.” They measure off 7 feet for Lexie ‘s track, 16 feet for Josh’s track and 10 feet for Hannah’s track. “Now let’s measure our shoes,” says Josh. “my shoe is 1/2 of a foot.” says Lexie. “Three of my shoes add up to 2 feet.” says Hannah. Josh says his shoe is exactly a foot long.
