    The conversion factor is 12 inches = 1 foot.

    (Note: the problem did not ask you to solve how many feet or in 120 inches. It only asked what factor you would need to know to do the conversion.)

    12 inches = 1 foot. is the conversation factor .

    Hence

    120 in / 12 in = 10 ft.

    Remember the Imperial Linear Table.

    12 in = 1 ft,.

    3 ft = 1 yard

    22 yds = 1 chain

    10 chns = 1 furlong

    8 furlongs = 1 mile.

    1 foot = 12 inches so divide by 12.

    120 inches = 120/12 = 10 feet.

    There are 12 inches in a foot, so:

    120 in (1/12 ft/in) = 10 ft
