How Tall Is That? - Set 1

Explanation: Being able to convert from a given number of inches to the equivalent number of feet (or feet and inches, such as 5'3") is a valuable math skill.  Twelve inches is equivalent to one foot, so the first step is to divide the given number of inches by 12.  The answer to that division problem is the number of feet.  The remaining number of inches is the portion of the next foot.  The symbol for feet is ' and the symbol for inches is " so 5'3" represents 5 feet and 3 inches.  

Examples:

32"      32 ÷ 12 = 2 with a remainder of 10, so 32" = 2'10"

65"      65 ÷ 12 = 5 with a remainder of 5, so 65" = 5'5"

Notes: 12" = 1',   24" = 2',  36" = 3',    48" = 4',     60" = 5',    72" = 6',    84" = 7',     96" = 8',    108" = 9',    120" = 10',     132" = 11',    144" = 12'

Directions: For each problem in this problem set you will need to convert the given number of inches to an equivalent number of feet and inches.  Strive for being able to accomplish the problems with ease and then strive for speed.  Good luck and enjoy the challenge!
