An oak tree is 1.5×103 centimeters tall. which unit of measurement is most appropriate to measure this height? kilometers feet inches millimeters


The height is given as 5.05 x 10⁻⁵ miles.

Because this is in English units, we should reduce the height to inches.

Note that
1 mile = 5280 ft
           = 5280*12 = 63360 in

Therefore the height is
(5.08 x 10⁻⁵ miles)*(63360 in/mile) = 3.219 in

3.2 in (nearest tenth)
The given measurement is in English units, so the conversion stays in English units.
The correct answer would be feet, a
If you multiply the amount that you give 1.5 × 1031.5 × 103 the result is 159366.75 centimeters, which is very long to write. For better understanding it is preferable that you write the answer to this multiplication in kilometers. Which would give a result of 1.59 kilometers

You would use feet

The correct answer is feet.

Step-by-step explanation:

A oak tree can be up to 100 feet, so obviously it would not be inches or milometers as they're too small of measurements. Kilometers would be way to long, so feet is the only possible choice.

D) feet

A tree 1.5 x 10^3 is 1500 centimeters. That's about 300 inches, which would better be measured in feet.

 Option D is the correct answer.


 Height of grass = 5.08 x 10⁻⁵miles


         1 mile = 5280 feet

          Height of grass = 5.08 x 10⁻⁵x 5280 = 0.268 ft


         1 mile = 1.6 km

         Height of grass = 5.08 x 10⁻⁵x 1.6 = 8.128 x 10⁻⁵ km


         1 mile = 1600 m

         Height of grass = 5.08 x 10⁻⁵x 1600 = 0.0812 m


         1 mile = 63360 inches

         Height of grass = 5.08 x 10⁻⁵x 63360 = 3.22 inches

From seeing the result it can be understood that inch is the best unit to measure the height of grass.

Option D is the correct answer.
