This question can be simplified: If you only use one unit multiplier, then your

answer is simply 180 inches (36 inches in a yard, 5 yards). If you use two unit

multipliers, which takes more time, the process by which you get 180 inches is

as follows: 12 inches in a foot, times 3 feet in a yard (36 inches) times 5 yards

(180 inches).


But the question did specify the method of solution, which should remind us

that learning the method is more important than the answer to little problems

like this one.

A "unit multiplier" is a fraction with equal numerator and denominator, which is

therefore equal to ' 1 ', and you can multiply a measurement by it without changing

the value of the measurement.

Each of the fractions in the following procedure is equal to ' 1 ':

(5 yards) x ( 3 feet/yard ) x (12 inches/foot) = 180 inches
