1. ## hey

please show me how to do this! in 1900 blah blah set a world record of 1.65 meters and captured the gold. if there is 3.281 feet in one meter how high was blah blah 's world record breaking jump in feet?put answer as a decimal rounded to the nearest hundreth.

2. If there is 3.281 ft in one meter, then there is:
3.281 ft/1 m x 1.65 m = 5.41365

Think of this as a ratio.

$\displaystyle \frac{3.281\ \text{feet}}{1\ \text{meter}} = \frac{x\ \text{feet}}{1.65\ \text{meters}}$

$\displaystyle x\ \text{feet} = \frac{3.281\ \text{feet}}{1\ \rlap{\text{meter}}{---}} \cdot 1.65\ \rlap{\text{meters}}{---}$

$\displaystyle x\ \text{feet} = 5.41365 \approx 5.41\ \text{feet}$

$\displaystyle 1.65 \, m \times \frac{3.281 \, ft.}{1 \, m} = ...$
