A person that is 65 inches tall is approximately 5 feet 5 inches tall. There are 12 inches in 1 foot, so there are 60 inches in 5 feet.
Accurate height measurements are obtained by removing shoes, hair accessories and hair styles that have the possibility of interfering with the measurement. Both feet are flat, with their sides touching and their backs against the wall. The head is held straight while a flat object is set on top of the head; the flat object remains in a position parallel to the floor. The height mark is notated, and the accurate measurement is obtained by using a tape measure from the floor to the mark.
