    1 inch = 2.54 cm

    27 feet 10 inches = 27 * 12 + 10 = 334 inches.

    334 inches = 334 inches * 2.54 cm / inch = 848.36 cm

    1 meter = 100 cm

    x  = 848.36 cm

    Cross multiply

    848.36 cm * 1 meter = 100 cm * x   Divide both sides by 100

    848.36 cm* meter/ 100 cm = x

    8.48 meter = x

    Answer 8.48 meters.
