**Walk 400 meters wearing the pedometer**Record the amount of steps you take while walking 400 meters. One quarter mile, or about 400 meters, is a common length for one lap around an athletic track found at a typical high school.

**Multiply the steps**Multiply the number of steps by four. The figure produced by multiplying your steps by four is the approximate number of steps you take in one mile.

**Convert steps to miles**Divide your total steps per day, as reported by your pedometer, by the steps you take in one mile to determine how many miles you walk in a day.
