    Re: Jack was 6'4 it was the same height that Paul had.

    Have you ever thought about trying to learn from the responses you receive here, and trying to remember what you have learnt when you submit fresh questions?

    You are still running sentences together three years after you joined the forum.

    Sort that problem out, and then we'll look at the other mistakes.

    #1 is incorrect.

    Even though we say six foot four, we write 6'4".

    If you mention 'height' first, you can say 'Jack's height was six four'.

    Re: Jack was 6'4 it was the same height that Paul had.

    Jack and Paul were both 6' 4".
    Jack was 6' 4", as was Paul.
    Jack was 6' 4"; the same height as Paul.
    Jack was 6' 4". He was the same height as Paul.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
