Yards (yd) to Feet (ft) Converter

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

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

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

Inversely (or reciprocally),

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

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 yards to an equivalent quantity of length expressed in feet (yd to ft). Both formulas will yield the same result. The formulas are:

ft = yd ร— 3 ย  ย โ†’ This is the formula based on the multiplication conversion factor.

and

ft = yd รท 0.33333333333333 ย  ย โ†’ This is the formula based on the division conversion factor.

For example, if you have a length of 17 yards that you want to convert to feet, you would use either of the two formulas as follows:

ft = 17 yd ร— 3 = 51 ft
ft = 17 yd รท 0.33333333333333 = 51 ft

So, the result is the same using either formula, which is 51 feet.
