## How to Convert Pound Inches to Pound Feet

*Example: How many pound feet are equivalent to 4.78 pound inches?*

As;

1 pound inches = 0.083333333333333 pound feet

4.78 pound inches = Y pound feet

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

Y equals 4.78 times 0.083333333333333 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 4.78 * 0.083333333333333 / 1 = 0.39833333333333 pound feet

Answer is: 0.39833333333333 pound feet are equivalent to 4.78 pound inches.
