Answer

$\frac{3}{4}$ ft ,0.75 ft

Work Step by Step

Use a unit fraction with feet (the unit for your answer) in the numerator, and inch (the unit being changed) in the denominator. Because 1 foot = 12 in, the necessary unit fraction is (1 ft)/(12 in) Multiply 9 in times the unit fraction 9 in* (1 ft)/(12 in) = 3/(4 ) ft = 0.75 ft
