Finding how high a column of water in meters can be with the density of water and mercury

I'm struggling to understand what the question is asking me and what concepts it is trying to test... 
If the density of water is 1.00g/mL and the density of mercury is 13.6g/mL, how high a column of watr in meters can be supported by standard atmospheric pressure? By 1 bar?
