## How many inches (in) are in 1 foot (ft)? What is the formula for how to convert **inches to feet ****(in to **ft)?

**(in to**ft)

**1 inch (in) = 0.083333333333333 feet (ft)**

So we can say that there is 0.083333333333333 feet in 1 inch.

This means that the multiplication conversion factor to convert a quantity expressed in an inch unit of measurement to an equivalent quantity expressed in a foot unit of measurement is 0.083333333333333.

Inversely (or reciprocally),

**1 foot (ft) = 12 inches (in)**

So we can say that there is 12 inches in 1 foot.

This means that the division conversion factor to convert a quantity expressed in an inch unit of measurement to an equivalent quantity expressed in a foot unit of measurement is 12.

Knowing this inverse mathematical relationship between the two conversion factors and their reciprocal operations, we can derive two formulas to calculate and convert a quantity of length expressed in inches to an equivalent quantity of length expressed in feet (in to ft). Both formulas will yield the same result. The formulas are:

ft = in × 0.083333333333333→ This is the formula based on the multiplication conversion factor.

and

ft = in ÷ 12→ This is the formula based on the division conversion factor.

For example, if you have a length of 155 inches that you want to convert to feet, you would use either of the two formulas as follows:

ft = 155 in × 0.083333333333333 = 12.9166666666667 ft

ft = 155 in ÷ 12 = 12.9166666666667 ft

So, the result is the same using either formula, which is 12.9166666666667 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.

## Inches to feet (in to ft) conversion Chart

To save you time and effort spent on having to perform manual calculations or look up conversion formulas every time a conversion from inches to feet (and to the combined mixed format of ‘feet & inches’) is needed, here is a inches-to-feet conversion chart for your quick and easy reference. This conversion chart (or conversion table) shows common measurement values of length in inches and their equivalent measurement values in feet. These equivalent measurement values may be rounded off to 1 or 2 decimal places when it is mathematically expedient for everyday applications.
