**What is a Feet to Stories Calculator?**

Feet to Stories Calculator is an online calculator that helps you to find the number of stories in a building, given you know the standard height of one story.

**What is a Feet?**

A foot is a unit of length used in the both British imperial and United States customary system of units. One foot is equal to 12 inches. The symbol used for feet is “ft”.

**What is a Story?**

A story (American English) or Storey (British English) is a unit to measure the length of a building. A building is composed of several stories.

**Feet to Stories Conversion Formula**

The formula used to calculate the number of stories in a building is:

**Stories = Feet / 10**

**How to Convert Feet to Stories?**

The standard height of a story is 10 feet. So, to convert feet to stories, you need to divide the total height of the building (in feet) by the standard length of one story (10 feet).

**1 Story = 10 Feet**

If the height of one floor is 12 feet or 14 feet, then you need to divide the total height of the building (in feet) by 12 to get the count of total number of stories.

**Example Problems on Feet to Story**

**Example 1:** How many stories is 60 feet?

**Step 1: Get the Height of the Building in Feet**

Height of the building (in ft) = 60

**Step 1: Use the Feet to Stories Conversion Formula**

Stories = Feet / 10 = 60 / 10 = 6

Thus, there are 6 stories in 60 feet.

**Example 2: **How many stories is 250 feet?

**Step 1: Get the Height of the Building in Feet**

Height of the building (in feet) = 250

**Step 2: Use the Feet to Stories Formula**

Stories = Feet / 10 = 250 / 10

Thus, there are 10 stories in a 250-foot building.

**Example 3:** Convert 100 feet to stories.

**Step 1: Get the Height of the Building in Feet**

Height of the building (in ft) = 100

Stories = Feet/10 = 100/10 = 10

Thus, 100 Feet = 10 Stories
