Remember that 12 inches are equal to 1 foot and 3 feet are equal to 1 yard. These conversions will come in handy!

Try drawing a diagram of how many inches are in a foot to compare to each of these measures.

For instance, James converted 36 inches to feet by drawing the diagram at right. He could see that there are 3 groups of 12 inches in 36 inches, so that means 36 inches is equal to 3 feet!

If one yard is 3 feet, how many feet are in 2 yards? Can you use multiplication? Why would that make sense?
