    (3 feet per yard) and multiply 3 by 12 inches to get 36 inches

    If you want to convert 13,000 yards to inches, multiply by 36.

    thank you soooo much!! do you know what the next one would be? Using your answer the #4, if 1 pencil is 12 inches long, how many pencils does the average student need to purchase for school? #4 was the question we just did :)

    Calculate to see how many inches are there in 13000 yards and divide it by the length of the pencil. :)
