## 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 6 feet into yards we have to multiply 6 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

6 ft → L(yd)

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

L(yd) = 6 ft × 0.33333333333333 yd

L(yd) = 2 yd

The final result is:

6 ft → 2 yd

We conclude that 6 feet is equivalent to 2 yards:

6 feet = 2 yards

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 yard is equal to 0.5 × 6 feet.

Another way is saying that 6 feet is equal to 1 ÷ 0.5 yards.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that six feet is approximately two yards:

6 ft ≅ 2 yd

An alternative is also that one yard is approximately zero point five times six feet.
