'Linear feet' is a qualifier for a measurement. It means in your case 5,000 feet measured in a straight line, also known as a 'running measurement'. Here are a couple of examples:

A. You wish to buy enough material to put wood trim around the ceiling of a room in your house. The room measures 10 feet by 15 feet. You need fifty linear feet of material.

(2 walls x 10') + (2 walls x 15') = 50'

B. You have a room that is 11 feet wide by 20 feet long and you go to the store to buy carpet. At the store you discover that the carpet is sold by the linear foot, not by the square yard. The roll of carpet is 12 feet wide. You need 20 linear feet of carpet off the roll. (You would trim the extra foot of width off to make it fit.)

5000 mm = 16.4 feet

5000 kilometers = 16,404,150 feet.

5,000 meters=16,404.1995 feet

There are 5280 feet in one mile. Therefore, 5000 miles is equal to 5000 x 5280 = 26400000 feet.

The area of 5000 square feet are 0.114784 acres.

There are 3 feet in one yard. Therefore, 5000 feet is equal to 5000/3 = 1666.6 recurring (that is, 1666.6666...) yards.
