Pictorial Presentation:

Convert the distance (in feet) to inches, yards, and miles

Sample Solution:

Python Code :

d_ft = int(input("Input distance in feet: "))
d_inches = d_ft * 12
d_yards = d_ft / 3.0
d_miles = d_ft / 5280.0

print("The distance in inches is %i inches." % d_inches)
print("The distance in yards is %.2f yards." % d_yards)
print("The distance in miles is %.2f miles." % d_miles)

Sample Output:

Input distance in feet: 100                                                                                   
The distance in inches is 1200 inches.                                                                        
The distance in yards is 33.33 yards.                                                                         
The distance in miles is 0.02 miles.
