## How to Convert Feet to Miles

*Example: How many miles are equivalent to 40.51 feet?*

As;

1 feet = 0.000189 miles

40.51 feet = Y miles

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

Y equals 40.51 times 0.000189 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 40.51 * 0.000189 / 1 = 0.00765639 miles

Answer is: 0.00765639 miles are equivalent to 40.51 feet.
