# What's the ratio of 12 ft over 3 yd?

Jun 3, 2015

The answer is $4 : 3$

To get to this you can either convert both values to yards or to feet:

$12$ ft $= 4 \times 3$ ft $= 4$ yd

So in yards we have $4$ yd : $3$ yd $= 4 : 3$

$3$ yd $= 3 \times 3$ ft $= 9$ ft

So in feet we have $12$ ft : $9$ ft $= 12 : 9 = 4 : 3$
