## How to Convert Pounds Per Linear Feet to Pounds Per Linear Inches

*Example: How many pounds per linear inches are equivalent to 71.2 pounds per linear feet?*

As;

1 pounds per linear feet = 0.083333333333333 pounds per linear inches

71.2 pounds per linear feet = Y pounds per linear inches

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

Y equals 71.2 times 0.083333333333333 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 71.2 * 0.083333333333333 / 1 = 5.9333333333333 pounds per linear inches

Answer is: 5.9333333333333 pounds per linear inches are equivalent to 71.2 pounds per linear feet.
