How many Feet in a Yard?

There are exactly 3 feet in a yard, according to the modern definition of the yard. The symbol of feet is "ft", and the symbol for yards is "yd", and these are used in our converter above.

Difference between Feet and Yards

Both feet and yards are a part of the Imperial system of units for length measurement (sometimes called English system of units), used officially only in the US, UK, and a few other countries. They are of similar magnitude, so their application is usually similar as well: for measuring small to medium distances and for the dimensions of medium to large objects. For example, sports tracks and fields can be measured in ft or yd, as well as house or yard length, running or walking distances, etc.

Both units have a long history of usage and definitions, but are currently defined in terms of meters according to international standards by the SI, as well as ISO standards [1][2].

How to convert Feet to Yards

Conversion between feet and yards is simple: just divide the measurement in feet by 3 to get the measurement in yards. In cases when the number is not divisible by 3 without remainder, you often get infinite fractions, so a calculator can be quite handy. When dealing with large numbers our online ft to yd converter is your best option, even when offline, as long as you keep the page cached in your browser.
