So you have like 115 inches and you want it in feet?

Obviously you divide the 115 by 12 to get the answer in feet. This gives you 9.583 feet.

So the first part of the answer is 9 ft. The remainder is then multiplied by 12 to get the inches.

So .583 feet = 7 inches (following rounding procedures).
