    45/11 miles per day or ~4.091 miles per day

    Step-by-step explanation:

    3 inches per second

    24 hours in a day

    60 minutes in 1 hour

    60 seconds in 1 minute

    Amount of inches per minute: 3 x 60 = 180 inches

    Amount of inches per hour: 180 x 60 = 10,800 inches

    Amount of inches per day 10,800 x 24 = 259,200 inches

    To find the number of feet that 259,200 inches is, divide by 12.

    259,200/12 = 21,600 feet per day

    To find the number of miles that 21,600 feet is, divide by 5280.

    21,600/5280 = 45/11 = 4.09090909091 = ~ 4.091

    So, an ant could walk 45/11 miles per day or ~4.091 miles per day if it walked without taking a break.
