Ultimate Frisbee

In 2002, Christian Sandstrom (standing on level ground) became a record holder, when he threw a Frisbee 820 feet.

In 1996, Alex became a record holder, when he threw a Frisbee 32 feet. The difference...Alex is a sea lion who lives at the St. Louis Zoo.

Question 1: How many times would Alex have to throw the Frisbee so that the sum of his distances exceeds Sandstrom's record distance?

Question 2:If Sandstrom was to throw a Frisbee from Seattle to Miami in a straight line, how many tosses would it take?
