Jebb is the tallest player on the basketball team. He is 1 1/2 times as tall as the shortest girl in the sixth grade, who is 4 1/4 feet tall. How tall is Jeb?
3/2 x 17/4 = ??
IS this how I solve it? Help?

Wait I how about this wa. 17/4 x 4/2 = 17/2 then divide 17/2 = 8 1/2
is this right ??

3/2 x 17/4 = 51/8 = 6 3/8 feet
Doesn't it make sense that he is a little over 6 feet tall  rather than 8 1/2 feet tall?
