Since 3 ft. =. 1 yd. we need to multiply 4.5 yds. by 3.

4.5 X 3= 13.5 ft.

13.5 ft. = 13 ft. 6 inches because in 13.5, the .5 is = to 1/2

1/2 of a foot is 6 in, since a whole ft = 12 in

Here is a tool you can use in the future for these problems: https://convertoctopus.com/

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 4.5 feet into yards we have to multiply 4.5 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

4.5 ft → L_{(yd)}

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

L_{(yd)} = 4.5 ft × 0.33333333333333 yd

L_{(yd)} = 1.5 yd

The final result is:

4.5 ft → 1.5 yd

We conclude that **4.5 feet is equivalent to 1.5 yards**:

4.5 feet = 1.5 yards

It is good to recall that 1yd = 3ft. To solve this problem, you take the number of yards given to you (in this case 4.5 yd) and you can multiply it by 3ft. Another way to think of it is this way:

(4.5yd) x (3ft/1~~yd~~)

Hi Destinee;

(4.5 yards)[(3 feet)/(1 yard)]=**13.5 feet**

The unit of yards is in the numerator and denominator. It cancels...

(4.5 yards)[(3 feet)/(1 yard)]=13.5 feet

(4.5)(3 feet)=13.5 feet
