    1 century = 100 years.  4 centuries = 400 years.  Motion of glacier = 400 years x 43.0 meters/year = ????.? meters (you can do the rest).

    This isn't really a physic question...

    43m/y

    1 cent =100y

    4 cent=400y

    43*400=17.2km

    Given 4 centuries, start there and apply converters canceling units.

    4 cen (100yr/century) (43.0 m/year) = 17200 m

    More correctly 1.72 x 10⁴ m

    d = 43*400/1000 = 17 km (just two sign. digits)

    We learned to do multiplication in primary school.  43*400 .  As the 400 has only one significant digit it can be done in one's head in a couple of seconds.

    We know that

    1 century = 100 years

    So, 4 centuries = 400 years

    Now, 43 meters per year x 400 years

    = 739,600 meters

    Thus, if a glacier moves a the rate of 43.0 meters per year, it will move 739,600 meters in four centuries

    In four centuries the planet will be too hot to support glaciers, so there's your answer. If they say my answer is wrong you can call them a science denier.
