If you have been looking to find the answer to how many inches are there in feet? then you are at the right place.
Quite often people get confused by different units, calculations, and conversions. Thats why we have made it easy for you.
This simple and yet powerful inches to feet converter gives accurate values on the go. You don’t need to remember any formula. Just enter your inches and know the accurate result in feet.
We will make it easier for you to learn how to convert inches to feet by following our easy-to-remember guide.
Try to be familiar with these symbols and abbreviations. So, it will be easier for you to learn the inches to feet conversion method.
INCH international symbol is “in”, and for FEET it is “ft”.
Similarly, we will use unit symbols for both inches and feet.
The unit symbol for feet is the prime symbol ′, and for Inches, we will use the double prime ′′ symbol.
INCHES TO FEET FORMULA
The conversion formula is easy to implement and remember. There are twelve inches in a foot. So, all you have to do is divide the inches by 12 and you will get the answer in feet.
Let’s dig deeper to understand how it is done.
Example:
Suppose you want to know that how many feet are in 64 inches. You will simply divide the inches by 12.
The calculation will be like this:
FEET = 64′′ ÷ 12
FEET = 5.33′ OR 5′ 4′′
HOW TO CONVERT INCHES TO FEET
Keep in mind that the total number of inches in a foot is twelve.
We know that there are 12 inches in a foot. There are two ways in which we can convert inches to feet.
You can either divide the height of length by 12 or it can also be done by multiplying height and length by 1/12.
Use this simple and easy formula to convert inches to feet.
Feet = inches ÷ 12
Example:
36 Inches = 36′′ ÷ 12 = 3 Feet
12 Inches = 12 x 1/12 = 1 Foot
HOW TO CONVERT INCHES TO FEET AND INCHES
Length and height measurements are mostly expressed in inches and feet. The results that we get by using the above formula will give answers in decimal points.
Now we will learn how to convert inches into feet and inches by eliminating the decimal points.
STEP 1: Start with dividing the inches by 12 to get the feet in decimal points.
FEET = 64′′ ÷ 12 = 5.33′
STEP 2: If your feet measurement is not in decimal points then you don’t need to proceed further.
STEP 3: If your feet measurement answer contains decimal points then subtract the decimal point portion from the measurement to get an odd feet measurement.
5.33′ – .33′ = 5′
STEP 4: Now multiple the feet measurement by 12.
5′ x 12 = 60′′
STEP 5: Now subtract the inches from the odd feet measurement from the total inches to find the answer.
64′′ – 60′′ = 4′′
FINAL STEP: Now combine the odd feet measurement with the remainder inches to find your feet and inches measurement.
64′′ = 5′ 4′′
HOW TO CONVERT FEET AND INCHES TO FEET
If you want to convert feet and inches to inches then it can be done by using this calculation.
Let’s suppose that you want to convert 5′ 4′′ into inches.
STEP 1: Start by multiplying the foot with 12 so that you can get value in inches, and add the other inch value.
in = ( 5′ x 12 ) + 4′′
in = 60′′ + 4′′
in = 64′′
Now, repeat the inches to feet formula to get the answer.
Convert inches to feet by dividing it with 12
ft = 64′′ ÷ 12
ft = 5.33′
WHAT ARE INCHES
An inch is defined as a unit of linear length and part of US customary systems of measurement. There are 36 inches in a yard and 12 inches in the foot.
An inch can be converted into different units. As the value of an inch differed with time it was defined in the 1950s that the unit inch is equivalent to 2.54 Centimeters and 25.4 millimeters.
Inch is abbreviated as in and also with double prime (′′). Some find it convenient to use double quotes (‘’) instead of double prime to define an inch.
In most cases, a standard ruler of 12′′ is used to measure inches. Some other measuring tools that are used for the same purpose are:
- Scales
- Micrometers
- Lasers
- Yardstick
ORIGIN OF THE UNIT “INCH”
The word inch was derived from the Latin unit “uncia”, that means ( one-twelfth ) of the Roman foot.
Throughout history, there have been different units to measure length and height. The earliest known reference about an inch was found in the 7th century.
In the late 1950s, the standard was set for the unit “inch” in the international yard. Before that, there were many standards set to measure length.
It is reported that one of the earliest definitions of an inch was based on barleycorns. Where one inch was equal to 3 grains of dry barley.
WHERE IT IS USED
The unit inch is commonly used in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. It is also used in Japan to measure different electronic parts.
Inches are mostly used to measure the diameter of vehicles and it is also used to measure the length and height of monitors, furniture, and other home decors.
WHAT ARE FEET
The foot is defined as a unit of linear length and part of US customary systems of measurement. It is equal to 12 inches or ⅓ of a yard.
The foot can be converted into different units. As the value of foot differed with time it was defined in the late 1950s that the unit foot is equivalent to 0.3048 meters.
The foot is abbreviated as ft and also with single prime (′). Some find it convenient to use a single quote (’) instead of a single prime to define the foot.
In most cases, a standard ruler of 12′′ is used to measure one foot. Apart from that a tape measure of 3′ to 35′ is often used for industrial or home measurements.
ORIGIN OF THE UNIT FOOT
Throughout history, the standards of the unit foot varied from city to city and country to country. It was used in Roman, Greek, English, French, And Chinese systems.
The length differed in these countries due to the fact that prior to the standardization of units of measurement, people referred to human body parts for the basis of these units.
Once the international yard and imperial system were defined, the global use of the unit foot equaled to 12 inches and ⅓ of a yard.
USAGE
The unit foot is commonly used in the United States, Canada, and European countries.
In the United States, both feet and inches are used to measure different kinds of things. It is used to measure height, distance, field length, etc.
It is also used in the field of aviation. Mostly to know the altitude or the elevation of a high object.
