# How do you convert 1/10 miles into ft?

Nov 30, 2016

$\implies \frac{1}{10} m l = 528 f t$

#### Explanation:

Known: 5280 feet in 1 mile

Write this as: $\text{ } 1 m l = 5280 f t$

But we need $\frac{1}{10}$ of a mile

If we convert the 1 mile to $\frac{1}{10}$ of a mile but maintain the ratio we will have the answer.

Multiply both sides of the = by $\textcolor{b l u e}{\frac{1}{10}}$

$\textcolor{b r o w n}{1 m l \text{ "=" "5280 ft" "->" "color(blue)(1/10xx)1ml" "=" } \textcolor{b l u e}{\frac{1}{10} \times} 5280 f t}$

$\implies \frac{1}{10} m l = 528 f t$
