## How to Convert Yards to Feet

*Example: How many feet are equivalent to 54.28 yards?*

As;

1 yards = 3 feet

54.28 yards = Y feet

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

Y equals 54.28 times 3 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 54.28 * 3 / 1 = 162.84 feet

Answer is: 162.84 feet are equivalent to 54.28 yards.
