Raquel and her family are moving from Portland Oregon to Seattle Washington. She is comparing annual rainfall to prepare for her move. Portland's annual rainfall is 3 1/2 feet. Seattle's annual rainfall is 37 in. Which city gets more rain?
They both get the same

For the question about the toolbox, I think you're supposed to give each dimension in inches.
Rainfall? No, they don't both get the same. 
1ft=12in
2ft=24
3ft=36
And Portland gets more rainfall? 
Now both are right. 3 1/2 feet = 42 inches
