## Answers ( No )

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.
