The foot has been used throughout history to measure length but the actual length varied. In the US it has always been equal to 12 inches and 1/3 of a yard. The standard 12" ruler can be used to measure a foot. In 1959 the world agreed that the yard would be equal to .9144 meters, hence a foot is equal to .3048 meters. In some cases you may need a linear footage measurement, which is simply the value of a length in feet, learn more.

A typical ruler has 12 inches, equal to 1 foot.

We recommend using a ruler or tape measure for measuring length, which can be found at a local retailer or home center. Rulers are available in imperial, metric, or combination with both values, so make sure you get the correct type for your needs. If you need a ruler you can also download and print our free printable rulers which include both imperial and metric measurements.
