8) 3 ft = ___ in

1 ft = 12 inches

Multiplying by 3 on both sides.

3 ft = 36 in

9) 3 yd = ___ in

1 yard = 3 ft

1 ft = 12 inches

3 ft = 36 inches

1 yard = 36 inches

Multiplying by 3 on both sides, we get

3 yd = 108 in

10) 6 yd = ___ ft

1 yard = 3 ft

Multiplying by 6 on both sides, we get

6 yd = 18 ft

11) 36 ft = ___ yd

1 ft = 3 inches

3 ft = 1 yard

Multiplying by 12 on both sides,

36 ft = 12 yard

12) 216 in = ___ ft

12 inches = 1 ft

1 inch = 1/12 ft

Multiplying by 216 on both sides.

216 inches = 216 (1/12) ft

216 inches = 18 ft

13) 10 ft =  ___ in

1 ft = 12 inches

Multiplying by 10 on both sides.

10 ft = 120 inches

14) 108 in = ___ yd

1 yard = 3 ft

1 ft = 12 inch

3 ft = 36 inches

1 yard = 36 inches

Multiplying by 3 on both sides, we get

3 yard = 108 inches

108 in = 3 yd

15) 4 ft = ___ in

1 ft = 12 inches

Multiplying by 4 on both sides
