Measurements of Length

12 in = 1 ft

3 ft = 1 yard

5,280 ft = 1 mile

Let’s try some:

48 in = ___ ft

64 in = ___ ft ____ in

18 ft = _____ yd

10,560 ft = ____ miles

If you are going from larger units to smaller units, you will need more of them. So, you would MULTIPLY by the conversion factor

Measurements of Length

12 in = 1 ft

3 ft = 1 yard

5,280 ft = 1 mile

Let’s Try A Few:

13 feet = ___ inches

3 miles = _______ ft.

7 yards = _______ ft
