820 feet

Step-by-step explanation:

We can use the rule of three in this scenario since this is a ratio problem with one unknown. To do this we simply multiply the diagonal values and divide by the final value. We know that there are a total of 3280.84 ft in a single kilometer, therefore…

1 km  ==  3280.84 ft

0.25 == x

(0.25 * 3280.84) / 1 = 820.21

Now we can see that there are 820.21 ft in the 0.25 kilometers. If we round this to the nearest foot we would round down to a total of 820 feet.
