      Well, it's quite simple.
      just time the feet number by 12 times.
      The simple answer is:
      F (Feet) = 750,000,000
      F X 12 (How many inches go into a foot) = A (Answer)

      A very simple way to find out your answer is:
      75 X 12 = 70 X 10 = 700 + 5 X 2 = 10
      700 + 10 = 710 ( + 7 0's)
      = 710 0000000
      = 7,100,000,000 Inches

      You have to break the problem down into steps.

      You might start with the question: How many feet are in a yard? The answer is three, so the next question is what is 2/3 of three feet? The answer is two feet.

      I'll leave the rest to you. If there are 12 inches in a foot, how many inches in two feet?

Video transcript

Complete the table to show equivalent measurements in feet and inches. So they gave us the measurements in feet, and they want us to figure out how many inches this number of feet are. So we know that 1 foot is equivalent to 12 inches, so we can fill out this first one right over here. 12 inches make up 1 foot. 1 foot is 12 inches. Now, what about 2 feet? Well, that's just going to be 2 times 12 inches. 12 inches per foot times 2 feet gives us 24 inches. Well, here I have 5 feet. I have 12 feet-- here I have 5 feet. I have 12 inches per foot, so 5 times 12 is 60 inches. And then finally, 10 feet. 10 feet times 12 inches per foot gets us to 120 inches.
