Jack is riding his bike 65 miles in on an 8 hour ride. He is riding up Mt. Hood, which is 11,249 feet. How many feet will Jack travel today?

65 * 5,280 = 343,200 feet

Sorry, Ms. Sue, but that is not the correct answer. Somehow the answer comes out to 5100 feet.

Are you sure you included all of the information for this problem?
5100 feet is less than a mile.
