    metres - stories

    Discussion in 'Research' started by Fiesty Kel, Dec 31, 2006.

    Stupid question really, but how many stories high is something thats 37 metres high!?

    Or simply, one story = how many metres?

    for anyone else who's wondering, a 'meter/metre' is 39.37 inches... so, a bit more than 3 feet...

    and, since a 'story' is generally considered to be around 10 feet, then 3 meters/metres would be a close match...
