Question

Compare 3.2 miles and 17,998 feet.

  1. <
  2. >
  3. =

Hint:

Since both have different units, convert either one of them for comparison, i.e. either miles to feet or feet to miles.

The correct answer is: <


    1mile = 5280 foot or 1foot = 1 over 5280miles
    3.2 miles = 3.2 × 5280 = 16896 feet
    or 17998 over 5280= 3.408 miles
    3.2miles < 17998 feet
    Thus, 3.2 miles is less than 17998 feet.
