###### Asked in Exercise, Math and Arithmetic

### Does walking in place for 20 minutes equal to a mile?

It depends on your rate of walking. I believe the average human
walks at 3-4 mph.
20 minutes / 60 minute/hr = 1/3 hr
1/3 hr * 3.5 miles/hr = 1.167 miles
Walking at 3.5 mph, you would travel over a mile in 20
minutes.
Likewise, walking at 3 mph, you would travel 1 mile in 20
minutes.
So, 20 minutes is probably a fair estimate of one mile of
walking.
