Theresa wanted to find the height of her school's flagpole in inches. Theresa is 5 feet and 2 inches tall. She estimated that the flagpole was about 10 times her height, so she created the formula below to find the flagpole's height.

height = (12 x 5 + 2) x 10

Using Theresa's formula, what is the height, in inches, of the flagpole?
