The Height Calculation That Left Kate Stumped and Out of Pocket $1,000!

Do you understand it?

The Height Calculation That Left Kate Stumped and Out of Pocket $1,000!

During Wednesday’s show, Hughesy mentioned he was 178 centimetres tall which would find him being 5 foot, 10 inches.

Kate was quick (maybe too quick), to pull him up on this measurement.

“Ah I think you’ll find, that 178 centimetres is not even 5 foot 8” she told him confidently.

Hughesy was adamant his calculation was accurate making a $100 bet that he was 5’10”, Kate increasing the bet to $1,000 that he was only 5’8”.

Hear the hilarious exchange below.

How did this happen?

As listener, Megan explained on Facebook, “178 cm divided by feet (12 inches) is 5.8. As in .8 (80%) of a foot.” 

She continued to explain that 80% of a foot is 10 inches.

She wasn’t the only one to pull Kate up on this calculation mishap.
