# Three friends each have some ribbon. Carol has 42 inches of ribbon, Tino has 2.5 feet of ribbon, and Baxter has 1.5 yards of ribbon. How do you express the total length of ribbon the three friends have in inches, feet and yards?

126 inches = 10.5 feet = 3.5 yards

Let's first convert all the lengths to inches, then we can convert that first answer into feet and yards.

Carol has 42 inches of ribbon.

Tino has 2.5 feet of ribbon. Each foot has 12 inches, so we can say:

#2.5xx12=30 inches of ribbon.

Baxter has 1.5 yards of ribbon. Each yard has 3 feet and each foot has 12 inches:

To express the total length of ribbon the three friends have in inches, feet, and yards:

- Convert all measurements to a common unit.
- Add the lengths together.
- Express the total length in inches, feet, and yards.

Carol has 42 inches of ribbon. Tino has 2.5 feet of ribbon, which is 30 inches (since 1 foot = 12 inches). Baxter has 1.5 yards of ribbon, which is 54 inches (since 1 yard = 36 inches).

Total length of ribbon in inches: ( 42 + 30 + 54 = 126 ) inches

To convert the total length to feet and yards:

- Divide the total length in inches by 12 to get feet.
- Divide the total length in inches by 36 to get yards.

Total length of ribbon in feet: ( \frac{126}{12} = 10.5 ) feet Total length of ribbon in yards: ( \frac{126}{36} = 3.5 ) yards
