Feet is a unit of length in the imperial and American measurement system, and is widely used in countries such as the United States and the United Kingdom. The symbol for feet is 'ft' or ′.

The symbol for millimeter is 'mm'. It is commonly used for measuring small lengths in most parts of the world, except for the United States, where the imperial system is still used.
