## How to Convert Miles to Feet

*Example: How many feet are equivalent to 87.29 miles?*

As;

1 miles = 5280 feet

87.29 miles = Y feet

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

Y equals 87.29 times 5280 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 87.29 * 5280 / 1 = 460891.2 feet

Answer is: 460891.2 feet are equivalent to 87.29 miles.
