The circumference is 360 degrees. The equator is at 90, so you would travel 80 degrees, which is .222 of the circumference. (80/360) Multiply by 40,000, you get 8,888 kilometers.
One degree of longitude at the equator is longer because meridians of longitude converge at the poles. I think you multiply by the sine of the latitude to get the distance. (I didn't look it up.)
1)1000 kilometers (i looked at the map:)
