To convert a measurement in feet to a measurement in miles, divide the length by the following conversion ratio: 5,280 feet/mile.

Since one mile is equal to 5,280 feet, you can use this simple formula to convert:

miles = feet ÷ 5,280

The length in miles is equal to the length in feet divided by 5,280.

**For example,** here's how to convert 5,000 feet to miles using the formula above.

miles = (5,000' ÷ 5,280) = 0.94697 mi

Our inch fraction calculator can addfeet and miles together, and it also automatically converts the results to US customary, imperial, and SI metric values.

Feet and miles are both units used to measure length. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

## What Is a Foot?

The foot is a unit of length measurement equal to 12 inches or ^{1}/_{3} of a yard.Because the international yard is legally defined to be equal to exactly 0.9144 meters, one foot is equal to 0.3048 meters.^{[1]}

The foot is a US customary and imperial unit of length. Feet can be abbreviated as *ft*; for example, 1 foot can be written as 1 ft.

Feet can also be denoted using the *′* symbol, otherwise known as a prime, though a single-quote (') is often used instead of the prime symbol for convenience.Using the prime symbol, *1 ft* can be written as 1′.

Measurements in feet are most commonly taken using either a standard 12" ruler or a tape measure, though there are many other measuring devices available.Feet are sometimes referred to as linear feet, which are simply a measurement of length in feet.
