The dimension for length in feet is 377.2 ft and 278.8 ft respectively.

The dimension for width in inches is 4527.55 and 3346.45 inch -respectively.

The length of a figure, which is its longest dimension, indicates how long an item or figure is. Linear units such as meters, centimeters, inches and other measurements are used to convey it.

The shorter distance of an item or a figure is its width, which indicates how wide or broad the provided figure is.

See the step by step solution

## Step 1: Given data

Consider the given data as below.

Length of the soccer field, I = 115 m

Width of the soccer field, w = 85 m

## Step 2: Conversion of units

$1\mathrm{meter}=3.28\mathrm{foot}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}1\mathrm{meter}=39.37\mathrm{inch}$

## Step 3: Calculation of dimensions in feet

The length of the soccer field,-

$\mathrm{I}=115\mathrm{m}×\frac{3.28\mathrm{ft}}{1\mathrm{m}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=377.2\mathrm{ft}$

The width of the soccer field,-

$\mathrm{w}=85\mathrm{m}×\frac{3.28\mathrm{ft}}{1\mathrm{m}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=278.8\mathrm{ft}$

Hence, the dimension for length in feet is 377.2 ft and 278.8 ft respectively.

## Step 4: Calculation of dimensions in inches

The length of the soccer field,-

$\mathrm{I}=115\mathrm{m}×\frac{39.37\mathrm{inch}}{1\mathrm{m}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=4527.55\mathrm{inch}$

The width of the soccer field

$\mathrm{w}=85\mathrm{m}×\frac{39.37\mathrm{inch}}{1\mathrm{m}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=3346.45\mathrm{inch}$

Hence, the dimension for width in inches is $4527.55\mathrm{inch}$ and $3346.45\mathrm{inch}$ respectively. ### Want to see more solutions like these?
