5 inches is bigger than 1/3 foot OR 1/3 foot is lesser than 5 inches. That is, 1/3 foot < 5 inches

4 miles is bigger than 7000 yards. That is, 4 miles > 7000 yards

8 yards is equal to 24 feet. That is, 8 yards = 24 feet

Calculating the value of a quantity

From the question, we are to determine which of the given quantities are bigger or equal

- 1/3 foot or 5 inches

NOTE: 1 foot = 12 inches

If 1 foot = 12 inches

Then,

1/3 foot = 1/3 × 12

1/3 foot = 4 inches

∴ 5 inches is bigger than 1/3 foot. That is, 1/3 foot < 5 inches

- 4 miles or 7,000 yards.

NOTE: 1 mile = 1760 yards

If 1 mile = 1760 yards

Then,

4 miles = 4 ×1760 yards

4 miles = 7040 yards

Hence, 4 miles is bigger than 7000 yards. That is, 4 miles > 7000 yards

- 8 yards or 24 feet

NOTE: 1 yard = 3 feet

If 1 yard = 3 feet

Then,

8 yards = 8 × 3 feet

8 yards = 24 feet

Hence, 8 yards is equal to 24 feet. That is, 8 yards = 24 feet
