BrainBashers Puzzles

Puzzle IconMy friend, Neville, struggles with mathematics a little.

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 accidentally interchanged the feet and inches.

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

How much ribbon did I originally ask for?
