# How Many Feet in a Yard

Feet1 and yards2 are units of length common for different systems, like US customary, Imperial, or English. But if you want to know how many feet there are in a yard, it is not important what system you mean. The answer to this question will be the same for all of them:

• There are three feet in one yard.

Thus, to covert feet to yards you must take the number of feet and divide it by three. On the contrary, to find out how many feet are in several yards, you must multiply the yards by three. Easy, isn’t it? It is a task for the pupils from the elementary school.

The following section will give you some more useful information about feet and yards.

It is equal to 0.9144 meters. It means that the international foot equals to 0.3048 meters. This definition is official for almost all the countries, so there is no need to discuss outdated units. Just remember that one yard has three feet, and one foot has twelve inches.
