25 feet = 7.62 meters = 300 inches = 762 cm = 8.33333 yards

## 25 Feet Compared to Common Things Around Us

### 1) Garden Hose

A garden hose is a long pipe that is attached to the tap at the end of the lawn and made to supply water to different parts of the ground. It is used for irrigation such that the lawn remains green and fresh. The garden pipes are of different lengths. They are manufactured in sizes of 24 feet, 50 feet, and 100 feet. Here we shall need to look at the 25 feet garden hose which is generally the shortest one used in the garden.

### 2) Extension Cord

An extension cord is required if the core provided with the appliance is short or the device is far away from the switchboard. In such a situation the cord of the appliance is plugged into the extension board and the cord of the extension board is brought to the switchboard.

The length of the extension cord varies and it is manufactured in the size of 25 feet, 50 feet, and 100 feet. You can visit a store of electricians to buy a 25 feet extension cord for your house.

### 3) 4 Refrigerators

We all have refrigerators in the house. With the rising temperature of the surrounding area in the summer months, the presence of a refrigerator is very important to keep the food items fresh and the drink cool. The height of a standard refrigerator is around 6 feet which is more or less one-fourth the size of 25 feet. So if we can imagine four such refrigerators one on top of another then we will be able to calculate the size of 25 feet accurately.

### 4) 4 Folding Tables

Folding tables are usually seen in large events or outdoor parties where one needs more table space for keeping the food items or for placing more chairs as a seating arrangement for the visitors. These folding chairs are required on the front porch as well.

The general height of the folding tables is around 6 feet which is one-fourth the size of 25 feet. Hence if you can imagine four such identical folding tables placed one upon another then you will get the measurement of 25 feet.

### 5) Length of 5 Park Benches

When we visit a park we see these benches that are fixed beside the path. Once the walkers are feeling tired they can simply go and catch their breath on the benches. The height of these park benches is around 5 feet and they accommodate three to four people at a time. So if you can think about the accumulated height of five such park benches then you will have an idea of what 25 feet height looks like.

### 6) Four Adults

An adult human grows up to the height of 5’9” (1740mm). Hence if we round their height to be around 6 feet on average then we can say that if four such individuals are standing on each other’s shoulders then the height reached will be 25 feet. This is a good example for us to cite since we can simply observe our height and make it four times the original to get the required height of 25 feet.

### 7) A 2 Car Garage

A garage that can accommodate two cars spaciously is an example that can be picked to describe the length of 25 feet. Now the dimensions of the garage with two cars are 20 feet wide x 24 feet long. Thus we see that it is only one foot less than what we desire to see. This is a very common example that we have picked since garages are present in every house and some of them can easily accommodate two or more cars.

### 8) Width of 4 Cars

We all have seen the cars parked in a row at the supermarket or the edge of the road, at the parking lots, zones, below the apartments, etc. Now the average width of any car is around six to six and a half feet. So if you can observe four such cars parked in a line according to their width, then you will have an idea of how far is 25 feet.

### 9) Half a Semi-Truck Trailer

The size of a semi-truck trailer is 53 feet. These trailers are required for transmitting objects, heavy loads, and vehicles from one place to another. You must have seen one on the highways or in pictures. If half the size of the semi-truck trailer is considered then it will more or less be equivalent to 25 feet.

### 10) 2.5 Alligators

We all have watched movies based on this clenching jaw-bearing animal. Some of us also had the opportunity to see them in their natural habitats as we visited the Reserve parks and river banks. If you wish to see an alligator then you can visit the nearest Zoological Park and observe these animals. They range in size from 10 to 14 feet. The female alligators to be precise are of the size 8.2 to 11.2 Feet. Now as we consider the size of two alligators in a line according to their length axis you will get the measurement that is equivalent to 25 feet.

### 11) 4 Full-sized Twin Mattresses

The train mattresses vary in size according to the preference of queen, king, and double bedding arrangements. The shape of the beds also differs depending on the choice of the buyers. On average, we can state that the length of the full-sized bed is 5 inches or 6.250 feet from head to foot. The length of four such mattresses in a line will add up to the length of 25 feet and help you to observe the measurement well.

### 12) Size of 2 African Elephants

The general length of an African Elephant is 8.2 to 13 feet tall. Hence if you can imagine two such elephants standing next to each other then you will be able to estimate the size of 25 feet. We can see African elephants on television on Zoological Channels where the elephants are shown moving around in their habitat. You can visit the Reserve Forest to observe the length and vast size of these elephants which will, in turn, help you to understand the length of 25 feet approximately.

### 13) 9/10 the Size of a London Bus

The residents of London have the opportunity to travel on these buses every day. The tourists to this place also have had the chance to board the London buses. These buses have a general length of approximately 27 feet.

Now the buses are used to showcase the length of 25 feet and compare it with the required length. It is calculated that the length of 25 feet is nine-tenth the size of the bus.

### 14) 1.3 times tall as a Giraffe

The length of the giraffe is 19 feet and we all know that this lovely creature is the tallest land dweller. We must have seen Giraffes in Zoological Parks and Reserve Forests where they are observed dwelling in their natural habitat. On comparing the height of the giraffe with that of the measurement of 25 feet it is observed that the length of 25 feet is one and three-tenth the size of the giraffe.

### 15)1.44 times tall as the Telephone Pole

Telephone poles are set up in the locality to establish connection and communication in the area. The height of the telephone pole is 36 feet which is about 9 feet more than the size of the required length. The length of 25 feet is seven-tenth of that of the height of the pole.

### 16) 1.72 times tall the size of the Brachiosaurus

The size of the Brachiosaurus was about 43 feet. This ancient reptile belonged to the Jurassic Era and today the fossil remains and the models of this dinosaur are studied by students and experts. If you are someone who takes interest in the evolutionary history of the planet then you will be interested in this example that we have picked. The measurement of 25 feet is about three-fifths the size of the length of the Brachiosaurus model which we see in Museums today!

### 17) Twice the size of the Beetle Volkswagen

This model of the car was first manufactured in 1964 and ever since then, it has been a very popular model. We have picked up the example of a particular model of car since we see cars every day on the road and it is easy for us to imagine it for drawing up a comparison. The size of the Volkswagen is 13.380 feet in length and hence when we compare it with the measurement of 25 feet the given length is one and nine-tenth the size of the car.

### 18) Half as tall as the Hollywood Sign

If you want to know how tall is 25 feet then look no further than the famous Hollywood Sign. The Hollywood sign in California in the mountains is massive-sized letters that are balanced at the edge of the rocks. The Hollywood Sign is perched on Mount Lee, Hollywood Hills, Santa Monica Mountains, California).

The height of each of the letters is 49 feet and hence the size of 25 feet is about half the height of the Hollywood Sign.

### 19) Two-fifths as long as the Bowling Lane

The size of a **Bowling Lane is 62.8480 feet**. It is the path on which the ball is rolled that goes and hits the bowling pins at the end of the path. The more the number of bowling pins that drop, the higher the score. It is observed that the length of 25 feet is two-fifth the size of the bowling lane. Since we easily spot Bowling Alleys in the game plaza it is another useful example that we can pick to describe the size of 25 feet effectively for the viewers.
