  1. Let's add these lengths together. First lets add the feet -- 4 + 11 + 9 = 24 feet.

    Now add the inches. 8 + 7 + 3 = 18

    So -- we need 24 feet plus 18 inches.

    Since 18 inches is more than a foot, you'll need to convert your answer to get feet plus the number of inches (under 1 foot).

    If you post your answer, we'll check it for you.
