Utility poles are to be set every 30 meters. How many poles will be set in one mile if one was set at the beginning of the mile?

1mile=1609 meters.

The number of poles is: 1600/30=53.3=53 poles

but don't forget there was one set at the beginning, so you would have to add 1

so the answer is 54 poles.
