1 foot (ft) = 12 inches (in.)

1 yard (yd) = 3 ft

1yd = 36 in

1 mile(mi) = 5,280 ft

1in. = 1/12 ft

1 ft = 1/3 yd

1 in. = 1/36 yd

1 mi = 1, 760 yd


Example:
1) 1 yd 2 ft = 60 in; 1 yd = 3 ft = 3 x 12 in = 36 in ; 2 ft = 2 x 12 in = 24 in ; 36 in + 24 in = 60 in
Complete the following as in the example above:
2) 2 yd 3 in= 6ft 3in 2 yd = 2 x 3 ft=6 ft; 2 yd 3 in = 6 ft 3 in
3) 2 yd 1 ft = 84 in 2yd = 2 x 3 x 12in = 72 in; 1ft = 12in; 2yd 1ft= 72 + 12 = 84 in
4) 7 yd = 21 ft 7 x 3 = 21 ft
5) 1mi 325 yd = 2085 yd 1mi = 1,760 yd; 1mi 325 yd = 1760 + 325 = 2085 yd
6) 6 yd 2 ft = 240 in 6 yd = 6 x 3 x 12 in = 216 in; 2 ft = 2 x 12 in = 24 in; 216 + 24 = 240
7) 2 yd 3 ft 8in= 116 in 2 yd = 72 in ; 3 ft = 36 in; 72 + 36 + 8 = 116 in
8) Mary had a 100 in long ribbon. If she cut 1 yd 2 ft long piece, how long is the remaining piece of ribbon? Answer: 40 in; 1 yd 2 ft = 36 in + 24 in = 60 in; 100 - 60 = 40 in.
9) The distance between Sam's house and the library is 2300 yd. If he took a bus from his house and got off after 1 mile, what distance will he have to walk to the library? Answer: 540 yd; 1 mi = 1760 yd; 2300 - 1760 = 540 yd.
10) 2 mi 35 yd 9 ft= 3558 yd 2 mi = 3520 yd, 9 ft = 3 yd; 3520 + 35 + 3 = 3558 yd.
11) 6790 ft= 1 mi 503 yd 1 ft 6790 ft = 2263 yd 1 ft; 2263 yd = 1 mi 503 yd;
