A spittle bug is a tiny green insect that is 6 millimeters long. In one experiment, the spittle bug jumped as high as 2 feet. If a human being could jump at this same ratio, how high could an eighth grader who is 5 feet 6 inches tall jump? Would this jump be higher than the Statue of Liberty, which is 151 feet high? Higher than the St.Louis Gateway Arch, which is 630 feet high? (1 ft = 304.8mm)
