This length unit converter dynamically calculates a value you enter in **feet (ft)** and converts it to **inches (in)** and also to **feet & inches (ft & in)**. It also calculates a value you enter in **feet & inches (ft & in)** and converts it to **inches (in).**

## How many feet (ft) are in 1 inch (in)?

There are 12 inches in 1 foot. So 1 foot is equal to 12 inches. Conversely, there is 1/12 feet in 1 inch. So 1 inch is equal to 0.0833 feet.

## What is the formula for how to convert **feet (ft)** to inches (in)?

inches (in) = feet (ft) × 12

For example, if you have a length of 5 feet and you want to convert it to inches, you would use the formula as follows:

inches (in) = 5 Feet (ft) × 12

So, 5 feet are equal to 60 inches.

## What is the formula for how to convert **feet (ft)** to **feet & inches (ft & in)**?

Here are the formulas and steps to convert a certain length **expressed in feet**, such as a person’s height, to **feet & inches**. As an example, let’s use the height of NBA player LeBron James, who is reported to be **6.75 feet** tall, and convert it to **feet & inches**:

- From the height of 6.75 feet, take the number to the left of the decimal point as the number of whole feet.

6 feet

- From the height of 6.75 feet, take the number to the right of the decimal point and convert it to inches: To do this, multiply it by 12 (since 1 foot = 12 inches).

.75 feet × 12 = 9 inches

- Combine the number of whole feet (in step 1) and inches (in step 2) to get LeBron James’ height in feet & inches.

6 feet & 9 inch

So, LeBron James’ height of 6.75 feet is equal to is 6 feet & 9 inches.

## What is the formula for how to convert **feet & inches (ft & in)** to Inches (in)?

Here are the formulas and steps to convert a certain length expressed in **feet & inches**, such as a person’s height, to inches. As an example, let’s use the height of NBA player LeBron James who is reported to be **6 feet & 9 inches**, and convert it to inches:

**Convert feet to inches:**Multiply the number of feet by 12 (since 1 foot = 12 inches).

6 feet × 12 = 72 inches

**Add the remaining inches:**

72 inches + 9 inches = 81 inches

So, Lebron James’ reported height of 6 feet & 9 inches is equal to 81 inches.
