## How to Convert Feet to Kilometers

*Example: How many kilometers are equivalent to 49.64 feet?*

As;

1 feet = 0.000305 kilometers

49.64 feet = Y kilometers

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

Y equals 49.64 times 0.000305 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 49.64 * 0.000305 / 1 = 0.0151402 kilometers

Answer is: 0.0151402 kilometers are equivalent to 49.64 feet.
