If you are 60 inches tall, you may be curious about how tall you are in feet. For those unaware, inches and feet are units of measurement in the U.S. customary and British-born Imperial measurement systems. In these systems, 12 inches corresponds to 1 foot. So, how many feet is 60 inches? A quick calculation reveals that 60 inches is equal to 5 feet.
Although the names of these units of measure may sound a bit strange, they are derived from the different, less standardised methods that people once measured lengths, distances, and weights. The terms “pound,” “foot,” and “gallon” were still in use, although their meanings varied depending on the context. As global trade grew and spread, it was determined that a more formal, definite system of measuring was required, therefore the Imperial system was developed. However, the majority of modern nations have adopted the metric system, often known as the International System of Units.
