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

## How many inches (in) are in 1 foot (ft)?

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 **inches (in)** to **feet (ft)**?

To convert inches (in) to feet (ft), you can use the following formula:

feet (ft) = inches (in) / 12

For example, if you have a length of 75 inches and you want to convert it to feet, you would use the formula as follows:

feet (ft) = 75 / 12

So, 75 inches are equal to 6.25 feet.

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

Here are the formulas and steps to convert a certain length **expressed in inches**, such as a person’s height, to **feet & inches**. As an example, let’s use the height of NBA player Chet Holmgren, who is reported to be 85 inches tall, and convert it to **feet & inches**:

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

85 inches / 12 = 7.083333333333333 feet

- Take the number to the left of the decimal point in step 1 above, as the number of whole feet.

7 feet

- Take the number to the right of the decimal point in step 1 above, and convert it to inches: To do this, multiply it by 12 (since 1 foot = 12 inches).

.083333333333333 feet × 12 = 0.999999999999996 inches

- Round off the result in step 3 to get the number of inches as a whole number.

0.999999999999996 inches is rounded off to 1 inch

- Combine the number of whole feet (in step 2) and inches (in step 4) to get Chet Holmgren’s height in feet & inches.

7 feet & 1 inch

So, Chet Holmgren is 7 feet & 1 inch tall.

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

Here are the formulas and steps to convert a certain length expressed in **feet & inches**, such as a person’s height, to **feet**. As an example, let’s again use the height of NBA player Chet Holmgren, who is reported to be **7 feet & 1 inch** tall, and convert it to **feet only**:

**Note the number of Feet**

7 feet

**Convert Inches to Feet:**Divide the number of inches by 12 (since 1 inch = 12 feet).

1 inch / 12 = 0.0833333333333333 feet

**Combine the Results:**Add the results from steps 1 and 2 to get the total height in feet.

7 feet + 0.0833333333333333 feet = 7.083333333333333 feet

So, Chet Holmgren’s height of 7 feet & 1 inch is equal to 7.083333333333333 feet.
