Think of a cubic yard as a box measuring 1 yard long, 1 yard wide and 1 yard deep.

A cubic foot is 1 foot long, 1 foot wide and 1 foot deep.

You would need 27 cubic feet to equal 1 cubic yard.

None, since there can be no conversion.

A foot is a measure of length in 1-dimensional space while a cubic yard is a measure of volume in 3-dimensional space. The two measure different things and, according to basic principles of dimensional analysis, any attempt at conversion from one to the other is fundamentally flawed.

A cubic yard is 3 feet wide times 3 feet deep times 3 feet high (3X3X3) which equals 27 cubic feet.
