comment Convert Degrees of Latitude to Feet
Oh, so it's degrees of latitude. Your formula says a point on the earth @ 40.48 degrees of latitude is 14752756 ft away from the equator. This is roughly 4500 km. And makes (approximate) sense.

comment Are all small probabilities incomputable?
Is the probabilistic-method tag needed? I've a feeling it's not what OP thinks it is.
