Three neighbors measure the snow in their yards over an entire winter. Manny has 30 inches of snow, Mo has 3.5 feet of snow, and Jack has 1.5 yards of snow. The neighbors want to pile all of the snow into one giant snow pile so they can have the most epic sledding hill ever. Express the amount of snow the three friends have in inches, feet and yards.
