# 3 Ft Equals How Many Inches?

There are 36 inches in 3 feet.

- 12 inches = 1 foot
- 3 feet = 1 yard
- 22 yards = 1 chain
- 10 chains = 1 furlong
- 8 furlongs = 1 mile
- 3 miles = 1 league

Imperial measurements such as these are now precisely defined in terms of metric units:

- 1 inch = 2.54 centimetres (0.0254 metres)
- 1 foot = 304.8 centimetres (0.3048 metres)

Today, imperial measurements are not in common use around the world. Some countries, such as the United Kingdom, Canada and the Republic of Ireland have adopted the metric system as their official measurement system, but imperial measurements are still prominently used. Road signs in the United Kingdom, for instance, continue to show distances in terms of miles rather than kilometres.

The United States is unique in being the only industrialised nation that does not use the metric system for its commercial and standards activities. Instead, 'United States customary units are used'. The system has its roots with the imperial units system - and shares many identical measurements - but it is not exactly the same because the US system was developed before the standardisation of imperial units in 1824.

In English Measurement System twelve inches equals one foot and One inch equals 0.083 foot. That is:
• 1 foot=12 inches
• 1 inches=0.083 foot
To find how many inches 3 feet would be equal to, lets solve by:
1 foot  =  12 inches
3 feet  =  X
So to find X cross multiply.
Hence:
1*X=3*12
X=36
So three feet equals thirty six inches
OR
3 feet = 36 inches
