mount everset is 29,029 feet above sea level. How many yards above sea level is Mount Everest?
Would I divide 29,029 by 3?
9,976 feet above sea level
Would this be correct?
Your number is correct. But the problem asks for yards, not feet.
So that would be about 30 yards
Thank you Ms. Sue
Good heavens, no!
A football field is 100 yards long. When I was a child, my house was on a small lot that was about 30 yards deep.
You had the right answer, but stated it as feet not yards.
1 yard= 3 feet
