## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from feet to yards is 0.33333333333333, which means that 1 foot is equal to 0.33333333333333 yards:

1 ft = 0.33333333333333 yd

To convert 12 feet into yards we have to multiply 12 by the conversion factor in order to get the length amount from feet to yards. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 ft → 0.33333333333333 yd

12 ft → L(yd)

Solve the above proportion to obtain the length L in yards:

L(yd) = 12 ft × 0.33333333333333 yd

L(yd) = 4 yd

The final result is:

12 ft → 4 yd

We conclude that 12 feet is equivalent to 4 yards:

12 feet = 4 yards

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 yard is equal to 0.25 × 12 feet.
