# The length of Janelle’s Garden is 200 m. What is the length of Janelle’s garden in feet? (Round to the nearest hundredth of a foot if necessary)

Question:

A
656.17 feet

Explaination

Step 1:

Recall that 1 foot = 0.3048 meters. We can use this information to set up the following proportionality equation:

(1 foot)/(0.3048 meters) = (x feet)/(200 meters)

Step 2:

We can then use cross multiplication to solve for the missing term:

(0.3048 meters) × (x feet) = (1 foot) × (200 meters)

0.3048x = 200 feet

Step 3:

Finally, we can divide both sides of the equation by 0.3048 to solve for x:

(0.3048x)/0.3048 = 200 feet/0.3048

x = 656.17 feet
