Yards and feet are both units of length in the imperial and US customary system of measurement.
A yard (symbol: yd) is a unit of length in both the imperial system and the US customary system. The international yard is legally defined as exactly 0.9144 meters. The yard is used in land surveying and in the sale of textiles, such as carpet. A yard consists of three feet.
The foot (symbol: ft) is a unit of length in the imperial system and the US customary system of units. The foot consists of 12 inches and three feet make a yard. In many systems, the foot is divided into six palms, although most people divide the foot more often into inches.
Both yards and feet are widely used in the United States, and less used in other countries that use the metric system.
The conversion of yards to feet and vice versa is simple because these units fall within the same measurement system. There are 3 feet in a yard, so to convert yards to feet, you multiply the number of yards by 3.
1 Yard = 3 Feet
To convert feet to yards, divide the number of feet by 3.
1 Foot = 0.333 Yard
It is important to note that while these units of length can be used interchangeably in many contexts, they have specific applications where the use of one unit may be preferred over the other, depending on the context.
