## How to Convert Pound Inches to Pound Feet

*Example: How many pound feet are equivalent to 96.85 pound inches?*

As;

1 pound inches = 0.083333333333333 pound feet

96.85 pound inches = Y pound feet

Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;

Y equals 96.85 times 0.083333333333333 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 96.85 * 0.083333333333333 / 1 = 8.0708333333333 pound feet

Answer is: 8.0708333333333 pound feet are equivalent to 96.85 pound inches.
