You get .33 by Dividing 4” by 12. To convert inches to feet, you divide by
12. To convert feet to inches, you multiply by 12. 1 FOOT = 12 INCHES 12
INCHES = 1 FOOT Example: Lets say, You have 144 inches and want to figure
out how many feet is that, you divided 144 by 12 and it gives you 12 feet.
To check your answer, multiply 12 feet by 12 inches and it should give you
144 inches. Hope this helps. To convert inches to feet you DIVIDED. To
convert feet to inches you MULTIPLY.
