Answer

6670 inches

Work Step by Step

1. Translate: "The height is 50.5 inches more than 10 times the length of a side of its square base" height = 50.5 + 10l 2. If the sum of the height and length is 7327, then we write the equation l + 50.5 + 10l = 7327 3. Solve for l. Combine like terms: 11l + 50.5 = 7327 Subtract 50.5 from both sides: 11l = 7276.5 Divide both sides by 11: l = 661.5 4. Substitute l in the equation for height: h = 55 + 10(661.5) h = 6670
