The longest banana split ever made was 4mi 686yd long. How many feet is that? However, a 4.55 mile banana split was made in Selinsgrove, PA., in 1988. Which is longer? (Hint: 0.55 miles is 0.55 x 5280 ft.)

Carol,
IN one mile there are 5280 ft.
In a yard there is 3 feet

Ms. Sue,
Right.
4 * 5,280 = ?
686/3 = ?
Add those two answers to find out the length of the first banana split.

Steve,
4 mi + 686 yd = 4*5280 + 686*3 feet
4.55 mi = 4.55 * 5280 ft
do the math and compare.
