Puzzle ZVAQ 

Please consider supporting BrainBashers [hide]

My friend, Neville, sometimes finds mathematics a little tricky.

I recently asked him to buy me some ribbon for my daughter's pretty pink bonnet.

He went to the haberdashery shop for the required length but he accidentally interchanged the feet and inches when asking.

When I measured the resulting ribbon I only had 30% of the length I required.

How much ribbon did I originally ask for?

Remember that there are 12 inches in a foot.
