# How long is 7/10 of a mile, in feet?

Apr 3, 2016

$3696$ feet

#### Explanation:

Each mile has $8$ furlongs. Each furlong has $220$ yards and each yard has $3$ feet.

Therefore each mile has $8 \times 220 \times 3 = 5280$ feet and $\frac{7}{10}$ mile will have

$5280 \times \frac{7}{10}$

= $528 \cancel{5280} \times \frac{7}{1 \cancel{10}} = 3696$ feet.
