## How to Convert Kilometers to Feet

*Example: How many feet are equivalent to 52.63 kilometers?*

As;

1 kilometers = 3280.84 feet

52.63 kilometers = Y feet

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

Y equals 52.63 times 3280.84 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 52.63 * 3280.84 / 1 = 172670.6092 feet

Answer is: 172670.6092 feet are equivalent to 52.63 kilometers.
