SPANISH 101 HELP?! " A que distancia...?"

Hello! am an intro to spanish student and I have to record a brief dialogue with an online partner and the prompt for the dialogue is: ¿A qué distancia...? Interview your partner to find out the distance between Madrid and various locations.

This is kind of a vague assignment, but I am assuming since it is the title of the assignment, the questions have to start with "A que distancia.."? I think we need to ask questions like "At what distance is Madrid from Barcelona"? But I am not sure. I truly need your help. Could you give me an example of how you would ask a question related to this starting with "A que distancia?" Does that essentially translate to "How far...?" I know we recently learned how to say large numbers, so maybe that will be incorporated in our answers. Thank you so much!!!

Puedes- hacer preguntas divertidas usando números intrigantes:)-Por ejemplo-¿A que distancia esta el sol de la tierra? El Sol está a una distancia promedio aproximada de 93,000,000 millas (150 millones de kilómetros) de la Tierra. Está tan lejos, que la luz desde el Sol, viajando a una velocidad de 186,000 millas (300,000 kilómetros por segundo) toma alrededor de 8 minutos en alcanzarnos.

You can use "A qué distancia" with a travel dialogue. Most the time when you're learning a language one topic is Travelling. So, let me give you some examples: *Hola. Por favor podría decirme a qué distancia está el museo? * Desde aqui se encuenta a cinco cuadras siguiendo derecho. *Gracias por la información. Other *Hola. Por favor , a qué distancia se encuentra la estación de trenes? *La estación de trenes se encuentra a tres kilómetros de distancia. You can use "A qué distancia está..... and also, "A qué distancia se encuentra...Is like what is the distance and how fars is it... Let me know if you have any doubt.

A que distancia? How far? Example a que distancia está tu casa? How far is your home?
