The number of miles covered by 20,000 steps can vary depending on factors such as stride length and walking pace. However, a common estimate is that the average person's stride length corresponds to approximately 2.5 feet or 0.762 meters.

To calculate the distance covered by 20,000 steps:

Distance (in meters) = Number of steps × Stride length (in meters)

Distance (in meters) = 20,000 steps × 0.762 meters = 15,240 meters

Now, we can convert the distance from meters to miles:

1 mile = 1609.34 meters

Distance (in miles) = 15,240 meters ÷ 1609.34 meters/mile ≈ 9.48 miles

So, approximately 20,000 steps would cover around 9.48 miles. Keep in mind that this is an estimate, and actual distances may vary based on individual factors such as stride length and terrain.
