Answers:There are 3,280.84 feet in a kilometer.
Answers:using your numbers: 3.281 ft = 1 meter 5280 ft = 1 mile 1000 meters = 1 kilometer So, you can approach this in two methods: How many feet are in 1 kilometer? 1 kilometer = 1000 meters = 1000*3.281 ft = 3281 ft. Now compare the number of feet in a kilometer to the number of feet in a mile to give you a fraction to tell you what direction to convert: 3281 ft in a kilometer / 5280 ft in a mile = 3281/5280 ~= 0.621 miles in one kilometer or 5280 ft in a mile / 3281 ft in a kilometer = 5280/3281 ~= 1.609 kilometers in one mile How many meters are in one mile? 1 ft = 1/3.281 meters 1 mile = 5280 ft = 5280/3.281 meters = 1609.27 meters = 1.609 km you can use the same ratio of 1 mile = 1.609 km to convert back and forth. divide both sides by 1.609, and you'll get 1/1.609 miles = 1 km, or .621 miles = 1 km. you can add/subtract/multiply/divide, so long as you do the same operation to both sides of an = equation, and you'll still preserve the same equality.
Answers:Let's be a little more precise. 1 foot equals 0.3048 meters. So, here we go 5280 x 0.3048 / 1000 = 1.609 Km per mile. That''s within about a foot, or at least the one that has 12 inches in it. :-)
