    there are 12 inches in 1 foot write the ratio times the number of feet \[ \frac{12 \ inches}{1 \ foot} \cdot 1.5 \ feet\] now multiply can you do that ?

    1 1/2 (or 1.5) can also be written as 3/2 so you can multiply two fractions \[ \frac{12}{1} \cdot \frac{3}{2} \]

    are you saying you don't know how to multiply top times top and bottom times bottom in \[ \frac{12}{1} \cdot \frac{3}{2} \]?

    no, when you multiply two fractions you do top times top bottom times bottom to get a new fraction

    if you would first change 1 1/2 feet into inches, we can get to the problem
