Feet (ft) to Yards (yd) Converter

This length unit converter dynamically calculates a value you enter in feet (ft) and converts it to yards (yd), or a value you enter in feet & inches (ft & in) and converts it to yards (y).

How many feet (ft) are in 1 yard (yd)? What is the formula for how to convert feet to yards (ft to yd)?

1 foot (ft) = 0.33333333333333 yard (yd)
So we can say that there is 0.33333333333333 yard in 1 foot.
This means that the multiplication conversion factor to convert a quantity expressed in a foot unit of measurement to an equivalent quantity expressed in a yard unit of measurement is 0.33333333333333.

Inversely (or reciprocally),

1 yard (yd) = 3 feet (ft)
So we can say that there is 3 feet in 1 yard.
This means that the division conversion factor to convert a quantity expressed in a foot unit of measurement to an equivalent quantity expressed in a yard unit of measurement is 3.

Knowing this inverse mathematical relationship between the two conversion factors and their reciprocal operations, we can derive two formulas to calculate and convert a quantity of length expressed in feet to an equivalent quantity of length expressed in yards (ft to yd). Both formulas will yield the same result. The formulas are:

yd = ft ร— 0.33333333333333 ย  ย โ†’ This is the formula based on the multiplication conversion factor.

and

yd = ft รท 3 ย  ย โ†’ This is the formula based on the division conversion factor.

For example, if you have a length of 36 feet that you want to convert to yards, you would use either of the two formulas as follows:

yd = 36 ft ร— 0.33333333333333 = 12 yd
yd = 36 ft รท 3 = 12 yd

So, the result is the same using either formula, which is 12 yards.
