How to convert yards to feet+inches?

To convert from yards to feet+inches, we start by multiplying the yards by 3. This will give us the number of feet. Here, we only take the integer.

Next, we multiply the decimal part of the number of feet by 12 to find the number of inches.

Example 1:

Find the number of feet+inches that are equal to 3.4 yards.

Solution: By multiplying the number of yards by 3, we have

d(ft) = 3.4Γ—3

d(ft) = 10.2 ft

The number of feet is 10. Now, we multiply the decimal part by 12 and we have:

d(in) = 0.2Γ—12

d(in) = 2.4 in

Therefore, 3.4 yards is equal to 10 feet + 2.4 inches.

Example 2:

How many feet+inches equal 5.8 yards?

Solution: We start by multiplying the number of yards by 3 to get the number of feet:

d(ft) = 5.8Γ—3

d(ft) = 17.4 ft

We are 17 feet. Now, we multiply the decimal part by 12 and we have:

d(in) = 0.4Γ—12

d(in) = 4.8 in

Therefore, 5.8 yards equals 17 feet + 4.8 inches.

Example 3:

Determine the number of feet+inches that are equal to 6.2

Solution: We have to multiply by 3 to find the number of feet:

d(ft) = 6.2Γ—3

d(ft) = 18.6 ft

We are 18 feet. Now, we multiply the decimal part by 12 and we have:

d(in) = 0.6Γ—12

d(in) = 7.2 in

Therefore, 6.2 yards equals 18 feet + 7.2 inches.
