## Inches

An inch is a unit of linear length measure equal to ^{1}/_{12} of a foot or ^{1}/_{36} of a yard.
Because the international yard is legally defined to be equal to exactly 0.9144 meters, one inch is equal to 2.54 centimeters.^{[1]}

The inch is a US customary and imperial unit of length. Inches can be abbreviated as *in*, for example 1 inch can be written as 1 in.

Inches can also be denoted using the *″* symbol, otherwise know as a double-prime.
Often a double-quote (") is used instead of a double-prime for convenience.
Using the double-prime, *1 in* can be written as 1″.

The standard ruler has 12", and are a common measuring tool for measuring inches. They are also often measured using tape measures which commonly come in lengths from 6' - 35'. Other types of measuring devices include scales, calipers, measuring wheels, micrometers, yardsticks, and even lasers.

## Yards

The yard is a unit of length measurement equal to 3 feet or 36 inches. The international yard is legally defined to be equal to exactly 0.9144 meters.

The yard is a US customary and imperial unit of length. Yards can be abbreviated as *yd*, for example 1 yard can be written as 1 yd.

We recommend using a ruler or tape measure for measuring length, which can be found at a local retailer or home center. Rulers are available in imperial, metric, or combination with both values, so make sure you get the correct type for your needs.

If you need a ruler you can also download and print our free printable rulers, which include both imperial and metric measurements.
