Best Answer

they both mean the same thing but 36 inches is deemed more accurate

A scientist or engineer would most likely tell you that "36 inches" is more precise than "3 feet," since their method of measuring errors in calculation is based on the smallest unit used to make the measurements.

In general use, these two values are understood to be exactly equal in value and precision.
