Answers

1. Answer :

2 feet into inches : 

Here, we convert bigger unit into smaller unit. So we have to multiply.

2 feet  =  2  12 inches 

2 feet  =  24 inches

So, 2 feet is equal to 24 inches.

2. Answer :

3.5 yards into inches : 

Here, we convert bigger unit into smaller unit. So we have to multiply.

3.5 yards  =  3.5  36 inches

3.5 yards  =  126 inches

So, 3.5 yards is equal to 126 inches.

3. Answer :

30 inches into feet : 

Here, we convert smaller unit into bigger unit. So we have to divide.

30 inches  =  30/12 feet 

30 inches  =  2.5 feet

So, 30 inches is equal to 2.5 feet.

4. Answer :

5280 yards into miles : 

Here, we convert smaller unit into bigger unit. So we have to divide.

5280 yards  =  5280/1760 miles 

5280 yards  =  3 miles

So, 5280 yards is equal to 3 miles.

5. Answer :

24 feet into yards : 

Here, we convert smaller unit into bigger unit. So we have to divide.

24 feet  =  24/3 yards 

24 feet  =  8 yards 

So, 24 feet is equal to 8 yards.

6. Answer :

1 hour  =  60 minutes

1 mile  =  1760 yards

Given : Distance covered in 2 hours is 60 miles. 

Then, we have

Distance covered in 1 hour  =  30 miles

Distance covered in 1 hour  =  30 ⋅ 1760 yards

Distance covered in 60 minutes  =  30 ⋅ 1760 yards

Distance covered in 60 minutes  =  52800 yards

Distance covered in 1 minute  =  52800/60 yards 

Distance covered in 1 minute  =  880 yards

So, David will cover 880 yards of distance in 1 minute.

7. Answer :

Speed  =  Distance/Time

Speed  =  15840/45

Speed  =  352 feet per minute

So, the speed of Mark is 352 feet per minute. 

8. Answer :

Here, we convert smaller unit (inches) into larger unit (foot).

So we have to divide.

Because, 1 foot  is  equal 12 inches, we have to use the fraction 1/12.

9 inches  =  9  1/12 ft

9 inches  =  3/4 ft

So, the length of the shoe is 3/4 ft. 

9. Answer :

Given : Height of the television is 24 inches. 

Height of the stand is

=  3 feet

=  3  12

=  36 inches

Distance from the floor to the top of the television is 

=  Height of the stand + Height of the television

=  36 + 24 

=  60 inches

So, the top of the television is 60 inches far from the floor. 

10. Answer :

Both Becky and Keith took the same amount of time. That is 20 minutes.

Distance covered by Becky and Keith are given in different units. (Miles and Feet)

We have to make the units to be same. 

Let us convert miles in to feet. 

So,

2 miles  =  2 ⋅ 5280 feet

2 miles  =  10560 feet 

Therefore,

Distance covered by Becky  =  10560 feet -----(1) 

Distance covered by Keith  =  10000 feet -----(2)

Difference between (1) and (2) is 

=  10560 - 10000

=  560 feet

So, Becky ran farther by 560 feet.
