We can write this problem as an equation: \(11 \times 8.5 \times h = 140.25\).

In this equation, \(h\) stands for the height of the \(400 \) papers. 

 

By solving for \(h\), we find that the height is \(1.5\) inches,

However, we are not done yet...

 

We need to account fot the fact that \(h\) is the height of \(400\) sheets of paper.

This means that the height for each paper is \(1.5\over {400}\), which can be simplified to \(\color{brown}\boxed {3\over{800}}\)
