3.75 ft

Work Step by Step

45 in. to feet Use a unit fraction with foot (the unit for your answer) in the numerator, and inches (the unit being changed) in the denominator. Because 12 inches (in.) = 1 foot (ft), the necessary unit fraction is (1 foot)/(12 inches) Multiply 45 in. times the unit fraction. 45 * (1 ft)/(12 in.) = (15 )/(4 ) ft = 3.75 ft
