The stack is 5 feet, 3 inches tall.

Step-by-step explanation:

To solve this:

1. There are 12 inches in 1 foot, so, divide 63 inches by 12 feet to convert it to feet.

$$\frac{63}{12} = 5r3$$

2. The ¨r¨ stands for ¨remainder¨. The remainder will be in inches, so, the remainder is 3 inches.

3. Put the feet and inches together, and you get ¨5 feet, 3 inches.¨

(Note: in decimal form, the answer will be 5.25 inches).

(Note: in fraction form, the answer will be $$5\frac{1}{4}$$ feet).
