## How to Convert Feet to Yards

*Example: How many yards are equivalent to 71.72 feet?*

As;

1 feet = 0.333333 yards

71.72 feet = Y yards

Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;

Y equals 71.72 times 0.333333 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 71.72 * 0.333333 / 1 = 23.90664276 yards

Answer is: 23.90664276 yards are equivalent to 71.72 feet.
