- How many inches are there in 750,000,000 feet?(8 votes)
- Well, it's quite simple.

just time the feet number by 12 times.

The simple answer is:

F (Feet) = 750,000,000

F X 12 (How many inches go into a foot) = A (Answer)

A very simple way to find out your answer is:

75 X 12 = 70 X 10 = 700 + 5 X 2 = 10

700 + 10 = 710 ( + 7 0's)

= 710 0000000

= 7,100,000,000 Inches(10 votes)

## Video transcript

Complete the table to show
equivalent measurements in feet and inches. So they gave us the
measurements in feet, and they want us to
figure out how many inches this number of feet are. So we know that 1 foot is
equivalent to 12 inches, so we can fill out this
first one right over here. 12 inches make up 1 foot. 1 foot is 12 inches. Now, what about 2 feet? Well, that's just going
to be 2 times 12 inches. 12 inches per foot times
2 feet gives us 24 inches. Well, here I have 5 feet. I have 12 feet--
here I have 5 feet. I have 12 inches per foot,
so 5 times 12 is 60 inches. And then finally, 10 feet. 10 feet times 12 inches per
foot gets us to 120 inches.
