A mile is a unit of linear measure equal to 1,760 yards, while a foot is a unit of length in the Imperial units and U.S. customary units.

Miles are abbreviated as mi while a foot is abbreviated as ft.

**Formula to convert feet to miles.**

To convert ft to mi, we use the conversion ratio that we get from how they relate.

We are told that 1 mile is equivalent to 5280 feet.

Therefore, to convert ft to mi, we divide the ft by 5280.

**Length in mi = Length in ft ÷ 5280**

**Example:**

Convert 50,000 feet to miles.

**= 50,000** **÷ 5280** ** **

**= 9.5 miles.**
