Best Answer

First convert the 5 ft to inches.

5ft x 12 = 60 inches.

Next divide 60 inches by 3 1/2 inches.

Hence

60 / 1 inches Divide 7/2 inches

60/1(inches) X 2/7 inches^(-1)

Inches cancels down

60/1 X 2/7 =

120/7 =

17 remainder '1' or 17 1/7 or 17.14285....

How to get the answer:

Since there are 12 inches to a foot, and you have 5 feet, you first multiply 5 x 12, which gives you 60. You then divide the 60 inches by 3.5 (3 1/2) which gives you the above answer.
