So, Inches to Feet conversion formula will be the same for inches to foot conversion. We understand how important it is to learn this conversion process; therefore, we are here with this guide that will help you easily learn the Inches to Feet conversion formula. But before that, let’s get an insight into the history of both these measuring units. 

About Inches

Inches are a unit of length used in the British Imperial and US customary measurement system. Length in inches is either denoted by “ or in. This unit of measurement is said to be derived from the Old English term ‘ince’ or ‘ynce’, which in turn came from the Latin unit ‘unica’. Derived from the Roman uncia, an inch equals 1/36th of a yard or 1/12th of a foot. 

The Old English term ‘ynce’ was defined in about 1150 AD by King David I of Scotland as the breadth of a human thumb at the base of the nail. 

Standards for the accurate length of an inch have witnessed multiple variations in the past. Still, after the acceptance of the international yard during the 1950s and 1960s, the metric-defined unit of an inch is exactly 25.4 mm. 

  • The History of Inches

Initially, an inch was defined as the width of a man’s thumb. Then, at the beginning of the 14th century, during the monarchy of King Edward II, the inch was described as three grains of barley, round and dry, placed lengthwise in an end-to-end position. Moreover, at multiple other times, this unit of measurement has also been explained as the integrated length of 12 poppy seeds. But since 1959, inch was officially defined as 2.54 cm. 

About Feet

With a standard symbol as ‘ft’, the foot is a unit of length in the US and British Imperial customary systems of measurement. Feet is the plural of foot and is a unit to measure the distance or length in the US. In the past, the exact value of feet varied from one area to another and sometimes even from trade to trade. The length typically varied from 250mm and 335mm. 

After introducing the International Yard and Pound Agreement of 1959, one foot equals 0.3048 metres. In both imperial and customary units, one foot equals 12 inches, and one yard equals three feet. 

  • The History of Feet

During ancient times, the foot as a unit of measurement was the size of an adult man’s foot. But since the length of a foot differed from one person to another, there was inconsistency in the exact measurement. The common measure of an adult man’s foot was used by the Greek, Roman, English, Chinese and French systems. However, the length varied from country to country and even from one city to another, giving rise to conflict in trade and other areas. Hence, there arose a need to fix a standard length of the foot to enable discord-free trade. 

However, after the introduction of the International System and Pound Agreement in 1959, the measurement of one foot was standardised as 30.48 cm or 12 inches.
