Although the foot has been used since the times of Ancient Greece, in 1960 the term came to refer to the international meter, which is defined as a third of a yard or a distance of exactly 0.3048 meters. Thus, 1000 feet is equal to 1000 x 0.3048 = 304.8 meters. By definition, a foot is a third of a yard. Thus, 1000 x 1/3 = 333.333, when rounded to 3 decimal places. There are 1000 meters in a kilometer and 0.621 miles in a kilometer. To convert, divide 304.8 by 1,000 to equal 0.3048 kilometers, and multiply 0.3048 by 0.6214 to equal 0.189 miles.
