## The correct option is C 4.55First, figure out how many pes you have when you have 75 digits:116=x75∴x=4.6875 pes.Now figure out how many inches are there, that is:111.65=4.6875y∴y=54.609375 inches. Now figure out how many feet are there, that is:112=z54.609375∴z=4.55078125 feet.Hence, 75 roman digits is equivalent to 4.55 feet.
