International mile [mi] is a unit of length for the US customary system of units. Historically, many definitions of miles were employed for measuring land distances. Roman mile was defined as one thousand paces (double steps). Today, the international mile is defined through the meter SI unit as: 1 mi = 1,609.344 m (= 1.609344 km).
Fraction units of the mile are defined as shown in the table:
How to convert miles to feet
- Multiply distance in [mi] with 5280
- The result is the distance in [ft]
For example 5 miles is 5x5280 = 26400 feet.
How to convert feet to miles
- Divide distance in [ft] by 5280
- The result is the distance in [m]
For example 8000 feet = 8000/5280 ≈ 1.52 miles.
