Answer

262.4 feet

Work Step by Step

80 m to feet We’re changing from a metric length unit to a U.S. length unit. In the “Metric to U.S. Units” side of the table, you see that 1 meter = 3.28 feet. Two unit fractions can be written using that information.(1 m)/(3.28 feet) Or(3.28 feet)/(1 m). Multiply by the unit fraction that allows you to divide out meters (that is, meters is in the denominator). 80 m * (3.28 feet)/(1 m) = 262.4 feet
