1 foot (ft) = 12 inches (in.) 1 yard (yd) = 3 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;
