Razzi says get these items ready (...) Because today we're going to practice... Converting Inches and Feet. It's time to begin! How many feet are in twenty-four inches? Pause the video to work on the problem (...) and press play when you are ready to see the solution! Since one foot is equal to twelve inches, we divide twenty-four by twelve... which is two feet! Did you also get two feet? Let's tackle the next problem! How many inches are in four feet? Pause the video to work on the problem (...) and press play when you are ready to see the solution! Since one foot is equal to twelve inches, we multiply four and twelve... which is forty-eight inches! Did you also get forty-eight inches? Let's try another problem. How many inches are in seven feet? Pause the video to work on the problem (...) and press play when you are ready to see the solution! Since one foot is equal to twelve inches, we multiply seven and twelve... which is eighty-four inches! Did you also get eighty-four inches? Let's practice one more! How many feet are in one hundred eight inches? Pause the video to work on the problem (...) and press play when you are ready to see the solution! Since one foot is equal to twelve inches, we divide one hundred eight by twelve... which is nine feet! Did you also get nine feet? Razzi had so much fun practicing with you today! See you next time!

• ### Convert feet to inches.

Hints

Remember that 1 foot = 12 inches so 2 feet will be 12 x 2.

A good tip for multiplication can be to multiply the tens first and then add the ones.

6 x 12 = ?
6 x 10 = 60
6 x 2 = 12
60 + 12 = 72
6 x 12 = 72 inches

Use a pencil and paper to help you. Multiply the ones column first, and carry over before multiplying tens.

Use doubles when you can. Find the solution for 2 x 12. Then double this for the solution to 4 x 12.

Solution
• 2 feet = 24 inches because 2 x 12 = 24
• 3 feet = 36 inches because 3 x 12 = 36
• 4 feet = 48 inches because 4 x 12 = 48
• 5 feet = 60 inches because 5 x 12 = 60
• ### Convert inches to feet.

Hints

Remember that there are 12 inches in 1 foot, so to convert inches to feet, divide by 12.

When dividing by 2 digit numbers, like 12, start by dividing the tens first to get an idea if you should go higher or lower. Then consider the ones.

Example:
84 ÷ 12 = ?
10 x 8 = 80
8 x 2 = 16
80 + 16 = 96, this is too high.

Next try 7.

7 x 10 = 70
7 x 2 = 14
70 + 14 = 84
84 ÷ 12 = 7

Solution
• 48 inches ÷ 12 = 4 feet
• 108 inches ÷ 12 = 9 feet
• 72 inches ÷ 12 = 6 feet
• 24 inches ÷ 12 = 2 feet
• ### Convert feet to inches.

Hints

Since there are 12 inches in 1 foot, you'll need to multiply the number of feet by 12.

• 48 inches = 4 feet because 48 ÷ 12 = 4.
• 120 inches = 10 feet because 120 ÷ 12 = 10
• 108 inches = 9 feet because 108 ÷ 12 = 9
• 96 inches = 8 feet because 96 ÷ 12 = 8
• ### Calculate how many feet there are.
