Why are there 5280 feet in a mile? Mile is an ancient length unit, commonly used by Romans (equals to 5000 Roman feet). When British started using it as a length unit, it was necessary to relate it to furlong which was a very common length unit used in agriculture. 1 furlong is 660 feet. It was decided that one mile to have eight furlongs, that's why there are 5280 feet in a mile (8 * 660 = 5280).
