Got it worked out.
15 ft - 4 1/8 in = 15.34 ft
15 ft get's moved over so we have 15
Now we convert the inches to ft
4+(1/8) = 4+0.125 = 4.125
Now we convert that into ft by dividing it by 12 as 12 in = 1 ft
4.125 / 12 = 0.34375'
And now let's convert it to 2 decimal points.
0.34375 = 0.34'
And for the final let's take the original 15 ft and add it up.
15 + 0.34 = 15.34' (15.34 ft)
