Question

A street sign is 73 inches tall. How tall is it in feet and inches?

Answer

Your height is six feet and one inch. Step-by-step explanation: As we know, there are twelve inches in one foot. Therefore, the nearest multiple of twelve below seventy-three is seventy-two. By subtracting seventy-two from seventy-three, we get one inch. Then, we divide seventy-two by twelve to find that the height in feet is six. Adding the one inch to the six feet gives us a final height of six feet and one inch.
