Task 1

Task #1

The Empire State Building is 1,472 feet tall. It is a tourist attraction that brings visitors from all over the world. Most of the world does not think of distances in feet. Distances are measured throughout the world in meters. In order to make sense to our visitors, we need to express the height of the Empire State Building in meters too. The task, though daunting, is possible because there are definitions that relate all these measurements.
