There are sixty (60) inches in five (5) feet. The calculation is quite simple. There are twelve (12) inches making one (1) foot. Therefore, to calculate the number of inches in two (2) feet, you just multiply two by 12. Thus, you have 24 inches. Let us calculate as we step up the number. Now let's do for 3 feet. You will have 3 in 12 places, i.e., 3 × 12, which is equal to thirty-six (36) inches.

For four (4) feet, you will have four multiplied by 12, which in turn gives 48 inches. Then to our target number, 5; using the concepts as before, 5 feet will be equal to 5 × 12 inches, which is equal to 60 inches. However, feet and inch are just two of the international system units which are used to measure the length or distance of a surface. Other units for measuring length include meter and yard.

60 inches.

An inch is a unit of length that equals one-twelfth of a foot or exactly 2.54 centimeters. A foot is a unit of measure that equals twelve inches or one-third of a yard, which is equal to exactly 30.48 centimeters. Since 1 foot is equal to 12 inches, we can calculate the number of inches found in multiple feet.

We can use these simple maths to calculate the number of inches in 5 feet. If there are 5 feet, all you have to do is simply multiply by 5 by 12 inches to get your answer. 1 foot = 12 inches 5 feet =? Inches Cross multiple 5 feet = 60 inches.
