One yard is equal to 36 inches. Therefore, one third of a yard
is equal to 36 / 3 = 12 inches. This is equal to one foot.

One yard is three feet and there are twelve inches per foot.
Therefore, there are twelve inches in one third of a yard. Example:
1/3 yard = 1 foot 1 foot = 12 inches

### How many inches are in 1 third?

It depends on what it is that you are interested in having one
third of. If in fact that is what you meant to ask. One third of a
yard is one foot, or 12 inches. If you meant to ask how many inches
in a yard, then the answer is 36 inches. One third implies one part
of any three of anything that can be divided into three parts.
That's the best I can do for you. I am not certain that I fully
understand your question.
