See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

We know the conversion factor of yards to inches is:

$1 \text{ yard" = 36" inches}$

To find how many inches in $\frac{1}{4}$ yard we can multiply each side of the equation by $\textcolor{red}{\frac{1}{4}}$ giving:

$\textcolor{red}{\frac{1}{4}} \times 1 \text{ yard" = color(red)(1/4) xx 36" inches}$

$\frac{1}{4} \text{ yard" = 36/4" inches}$

$\frac{1}{4} \text{ yard" = 9" inches}$

Therefore, there are 9 inches in $\frac{1}{4}$ yard
