    1) convert the 575 ft to mm, (1 ft= 12 in; 1in=25.4 mm) 2) calculate how many quarters in the mm calculated in 1 with the conversion factor (1 quarter = 1.55 mm) 3) Calculate the weight of the stack of quarters with the number of quarters calculated in 2) ( 1 quarter = 5.67 g) 4) Calculate the value of the stack with the number of quarters calculated in 2) (1 quarter = $ 0.25) 5) calculate the number of stacks in the public debit with the value of the stacks calculated in 4)
