Since we already know that there are 12 inches in a foot, we can easily convert the height of 5 feet 6 inches to inches. Here's how:

Inches from the feet: We have 5 feet, and there are 12 inches in each foot. So, the contribution from feet is 5 feet * 12 inches/foot = 60 inches.

Total inches: We are given that the height is 5 feet and 6 inches. So, we add the inches from the feet (60 inches) to the remaining 6 inches.
Total height in inches = Inches from feet + Remaining inches
= 60 inches + 6 inches
= 66 inches
Therefore, 5 feet 6 inches is equal to 66 inches.
