$11$ inches

#### Explanation:

$1$ foot is defined as being equal to $12$ inches.

So $3$ $\text{ft}$ $7$ $\text{in.}$ is equal to $12 \times 3 + 7 = 36 + 7 = 43$ inches.

Now, $43$ $\text{inches} \div 4 = 10.75$ $\text{inches}$

In this case, the numbers after the decimal place are above $5$.

So we round up:

$43$ $\text{inches} \div 4 \approx 11$ $\text{inches}$

The answer is $11$ inches.

#### Explanation:

We first convert the length into inches.

One foot is $12$ inches, so $3$ feet will be:

$3 \times 12 = 36$ inches.

Since the total length is $3$ ft $7$ in, the full length in inches is:

$36 + 7 = 43$

Now we divide this length by $4$.

$43 \div 4 = 10.75$

When the number after the decimal is anything from $5$ to $9$, we round up the number before the decimal by $1$.

Hence $10.75 \approx 11$

The answer is $11$ inches.
