What is the height in meters of a person who is 5 ft 7.0 in. tall?

in this problem, we have been given The height of a person in terms of feet and anxious. So a person is five ft 7" tall and we have to convert this heightened meters. So here we know that one ft its 10.3048 m and one inches approximately 10.0 to 4 m. So let's use this conversion factor. So as one ft is 10.3048 m. So five ft, that will be five times point 3048 m. And this comes out to be approximately one 5 to 4 meters And similarly as 1" as 0 to 4 m. So seven inches, that will be seven times 70.24 m. So here, when we multiply seven with 70.0 to 4 m, were going to get here, the result as point 11 .1778 m. And now we can combine them because five ft and seven inches, That is 1.5 to 4 m plus 0.1778 m. So when we add here, 1.5 to 4 with 40.1778, we're going to get here at the height of the person coming out to be one point 7018 m approx. So this can be rounded up up to two significant figures and that's approximately 1.7 m. So this is the height of the person and meters. Yes,
