1 foot = 12.000048000192 ≈ 12

Taking this into account, we realize that a simple multiplication will suffice to convert feet to inches manually:

d(") = d(feet) x 12

By example,Let's transform 4.7 feet to inches to see what the result would be in this other unit of length. To do this, we apply the mathematical formula above:

d(") = d(feet) x 12 = 4.7 ft. x 12 = 56.4 in.

If we had taken into account all the decimal places which actually has the conversion, we would have obtained this result:

d(") = d(feet) x 12,000048000192 = 56,4002256

As you can see, the result is similar and unless we need a very high precision, it will be enough to multiply by 12 and forget about all that collection of decimals that only complicate the calculations.

  1. It is more educational to teach where the mathematical equation comes from. In Engineering, the rule of three is used to convert any unit to another unit. Example convert 6in. to meters
    1ft=12in. 1m =3.28ft.
    X = 6in Xm =0.5ft Xm= 0.5ft*1m/3.28ft Xm= 0.5ft*1m/3.28ft
    X= 6in*1ft/12in X =0.15m
