Remember, there are 12 inches in 1 foot and

there are 3 feet in 1 yard.

You just need to multiply the number of yards x 3 to get the number of feet, and then multiply the number of feet x 12 to get the total number of inches.

Example: 2 yards

2x3=6 so there are 6 feet in 2 yards

6x12=72 so there are 72 inches in 2 yards

If you remember that there are 12 inches in one foot, and 3 feet in a yard, then there are 36 inches in 1 yard. To figure the number of inches in 2 yards, you just multiply 2x36 = 72. So there are 72 inches.

...1 yard = 3 feet

1 foot = 12 inches

3 feet * 12 inches = 36 inches in a yard

36 inches * 2 yards = 72 inches in 2 yards

One yard equals 36 inches. Therefore 2 yards equals 36+36 = 72 inches. Therefore there are seventy two inches in two yards.
