How many feet are in 13.6 inches?
Here is where you would use something called a conversion factor, basically its a number equal to 1, but it looks different, for example in your problem your looking to convert feet to inches so you would use the conversion factor: 1foot/12inches being sure to keep the inches on the bottom since you want it to cancel out with the other feet. then you multiply: 13.6in.*(1foot/12in.) as you can see the inches will cancel leaveing you with feet. so just grab a calculater and plug that in, you should get something a little more than one. Hope that helps :) 1.16 feet
A centimeter is ≈ 0.393700787 inches. We can multiply this by 136 to get the amount of inches in 136 centimeters. 0.393700787 multiplied by 136 is 53.54330608. This means that there are 53.54330608 inches in 136 centimeters. There are 12 inches in a foot, and 12 goes into 53.54330608 4 times with 5.54330608 remaining. Therefore, 136 centimeters is approximately (≈) 4 feet and 5.54330608 inches.
A rectangle with sides of 208 inches and 136 inches has an area of 208 in x 136 in = 28,288 sq. in. One square foot equals 144 square inches (to see why, square both sides of the equation 1 ft. = 12 in.), so the area is 196.444444... sq. ft. To solve the problem another way, convert the units to feet (208 in. = 17.3333... ft. and 136 in. = 11.3333... ft.) and then…
