The conversion factor is 12 inches = 1 foot.

(Note: the problem did not ask you to solve how many feet or in 120 inches. It only asked what factor you would need to know to do the conversion.)

12 inches = 1 foot. is the conversation factor .

Hence

120 in / 12 in = 10 ft.

Remember the Imperial Linear Table.

12 in = 1 ft,.

3 ft = 1 yard

22 yds = 1 chain

10 chns = 1 furlong

8 furlongs = 1 mile.
