Here's an example that converts days into seconds:

>>> days = float(raw_input("Days "))
Days 12.5
>>> print "That's %s seconds" % (days * 24 * 60 * 60)
That's 1080000.0 seconds

Can you understand how that works? Try to apply it to a meter to feet 
conversion and show us your code. 

Then we may look into the next step, converting meters into a combination of 
inches and feet.
