How many feet are there in two miles?
00:00:06.490 --> 00:00:12.100
First, we need to try and remember how many feet are there in one mile.
00:00:16.030 --> 00:00:17.000
Then you remember.
00:00:17.070 --> 00:00:22.210
There are 5280 feet in one mile.
00:00:24.370 --> 00:00:39.390
If there are 5280 feet per mile and we want to go two miles, we need to multiply 5280 feet by two.
00:00:41.570 --> 00:00:47.490
We set up the problem like this: 5280 multiplied by two.
00:00:48.870 --> 00:00:54.080
Starting all the way on the right, two times zero equals zero.
00:00:55.290 --> 00:00:58.840
Two times eight equals 16.
00:00:59.020 --> 00:01:03.050
We write down our six, carry our one.
00:01:04.410 --> 00:01:09.900
Two times two is four, plus the one we carried over is five.
00:01:11.220 --> 00:01:13.380
We’re finished with the one we carried over.
00:01:14.880 --> 00:01:20.350
And last, we multiply two times five, which equals 10.
00:01:21.730 --> 00:01:27.960
This tells us that two miles equals 10560 feet.
