Seventy inches is equal to 5 feet, 10 inches tall. Each foot equals 12 inches. To convert inches to feet, divide 70 by 12. The result is 5 with a remainder of 10.

Seventy inches is just slightly less than the average height of an American man. According to the Centers for Disease Control, in 2010 the mean height of men ages 20 and older in the United States was 69.3 inches. This is not the tallest worldwide. For example, a 2013 study in the Oxford Economic Papers found that, as early as 1971, the average height for men ages 21 and over in Great Britain was 70 inches.
