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?

Assuming you place a pole at the start;

1 mile = 5280 ft = 63360 in = 160934.4 cm = 1609.344 m

1609.344 / 30 = 53.6448

You need 53 poles, plus a pole at the beginning of the mile, for a total of 54.
