• Converting yards to feet.

## Definition of foot and yards

The foot is a unit of length in the Imperial and US Customary units equal to 12 inches. The symbol of the foot is ft, although the prime sign also indicates foot. Globally, commercial flight altitudes are described in feet rather than meters.

The yard is another unit of length in the Imperial and US Customary units equal to 3 feet or 36 inches. Its symbol is yd. It is the standard unit of measuring field length in various sports, such as American football, cricket pitches, etc.

## Converting feet to yards

Since 3 feet equals 1 yard, to convert feet to yards, we need to divide it by 3. For example, consider a 24 feet long pole. The ft to yard conversion will be:

$24 \text{ ft} = \frac{24}{3} = 8 \text{ yd}$

See how simple ft to yd conversion is? Now let's learn to convert yards to ft in the next section.

## Converting yards to feet

One yard equals 3 feet. Hence, to convert yards into feet, we need to multiply it by 3. For example, consider a 22 yd cricket pitch. The yards into feet conversion will look like this:

$22 \text{ yd} = 22 \times 3 = 66 \text{ ft}$
