The answer to what “feet” and “mile” are

After I answered the question: How many feet in a mile. Let me (or wikipedia)  explain what a mile and foot is.

Mile: A mile is a unit of length, usually used to measure distance, in a number of different systems, including Imperial units, United States customary units and Norwegian/Swedish mil. Its size can vary from system to system, but in each is between one and ten kilometers. In contemporary English contexts, mile refers to either of the following:

  • the international mile of 5,280 feet, 1,760 yards, or exactly 1,609.344 meters.
  • the international nautical mile of exactly 1,852 meters (about 6,076 feet).

There have been several abbreviations for mile (with and without trailing period): mi, ml, m, M. In the United States, the National Institute of Standards and Technology now uses and recommends mi but in everyday usage (at least in the United States and in the United Kingdom) usages such as miles per hour and miles per gallon are almost always abbreviated as mph or mpg (rather than mi/h or mi/gal).

The formula “multiply by 8 and divide by 5” to convert international miles to kilometers gives a conversion of 1.6, accurate to 0.6%, which is a useful approximation.

Feet:  A foot (plural: feet or foot; symbol or abbreviation: ft or, sometimes, – a prime) is a unit of length, in a number of different systems, including English units, Imperial units, and United States customary units. Its size can vary from system to system, but in each is around a quarter to a third of a metre. The most commonly used foot today is the international foot. There are 3 feet in a yard and 12 inches in a foot.

These are the exact discriptions from wikipedia

Another answer to: How many feet in a mile

Last time I answered the question; how many feet in a mile kind of simple. Let me try to expand the explanation a bit.

The question that is asked, is simply a comparison.  You are comparing feet with miles. So in order to do a valid compariso, you need to make the compared, let me call this items, items the same value. In other words, you need to compare apples with apples, and not apples with pears, if you get what I mean.

In this example, the apples are feet, and the pears are the miles. So, to make a valid comparison, we got to get the same values. To go on with the fruit example. Lets make oranges from the apples and pears.

So…1 feet (apple) = 0.305 meter (oranges)
1 mile (pears) = 1609,334 meter (oranges)

And there you go, you have a valid comparison. Now you are comparing oranges with oranges. And just like last time, you’ll get the same answer to the question; How many feet in a mile. Your answer is 5280 feet in a mile.

Have a nice day

And there you go folks, there are 8.82 ounces in a cup.
