Question Description

Can you help me understand this Programming question?

Write a program metric.c that asks users for their height in feet and inches, written

for example as 5’7”, and converts it to centimeters, printed to a single-digit accuracy. Note that feet

are represented by a single forward quote ’, and inches by a double open quote ” (not by two single

quotes). Also recall that a foot is 12 inches and an inch is 2.54 centimeters. The program should run as

follows:

(˜)$ a.out

Your height in feet and inches: 5’6"

You are 167.6 cm tall.

(˜)$ a.out

Your height in feet and inches: 6’5"

You are 195.6 cm tall.
