# 1000 feet is what in miles?

$1000$ feet is $\frac{25}{132}$ miles
A mile has $8$ furlongs, each of which has $220$ yards i.e. a mile has $8 \times 220 = 1760$ yards. But as one yard has $3$ feet, one mile has $3 \times 1760 = 5280$ feet.
Hence $1000$ feet is $\frac{1000}{5280}$ miles. As numerator and denominator, both are divisible by $40$.
$\frac{1000}{5280} = \frac{25 \times 40}{132 \times 40} = \frac{25}{132}$ miles
