How many Feet in a Mile?

By definition, 5280 feet equal one mile. Historically, the mile varied in length, until it was fixed with an international treaty in 1959. The internationally recognized symbol for miles is "mi" and for feet is "ft". Still, in some places in the US and the UK "m" is used to denote miles, which can lead to confusion with the SI unit "m", which stands for meter.

Difference between Feet and Miles

Both feet and miles are units for measuring distances and dimensions, but with very different magnitude. Due to this, miles are usually used to measure distances you would travel in a car, truck, or train, while feet are used for smaller distances like in running or walking, or for measuring the dimensions of large objects such as house, sports fields, yards...

Both units have a long history and varied in definition from time to time and from place to place. The foot, however, is much older than the mile, despite the mile being used as early as the Roman Empire.
