This quiz, Measurement - Inches and Feet, challenges you to find the equivalent. A horse’s height is often defined in terms of hands, i.e., 14 hands. In the U.S., most measurements begin with the use of a ruler. A ruler is divided in inches. The standard sized ruler has twelve equal sized inches on it. The full twelve inches is equal to one foot.

The foot measurement often confuses people because they believe that a foot on a ruler is the same as the foot they put into a shoe. For some people that might be true but for most it is not.

A foot in measurement is always equal to twelve (12) inches. Just as a foot is equal to 12 inches, the 14 hands mentioned above would equal 56 inches.

If you were given a measurement of 48 inches, you could turn that number into a more simplified measurement of feet. As there are 12 inches in a foot, you would divide 48 by 12 or 48 ÷ 12 = 4. This tells us that 48 inches is the same measurement as 4 feet.

In turn, if you are given a measurement of 5 feet, you could convert that back into inches. For this we would multiply 5 by 12 (the number of inches in one foot) so, 5 x 12 = 60. There are 60 inches in 5 feet.

If you are given the measurement of 19 inches and wanted to convert that to feet you would divide 19 by 12 as 19 ÷ 12 = 1 with a remainder of 7. This means that 19 inches equals 1 foot 7 inches.
