(a) $\approx 183~yards$ (b) $6600~inches$ (c) $\approx 0.1~miles$ (d) $\approx 9~feet/story$
(a) We convert feet to yards: $550~feet*\frac{1~yard}{3~feet}\approx 183~yards$ (b) We convert feet to inches: $550~feet*\frac{12~inches}{1~foot}=6600~inches$ (c) We convert feet to miles: $550~feet*\frac{1~mile}{5280~feet}\approx 0.1~miles$ (d) We figure out how many feet each story corresponds to: $\frac{550~feet}{60~stories}\approx 9.17~feet/story\approx 9~feet/story$
