120 inch

#### Work Step by Step

3 $\frac{1}{3}$ yard = inches Use the unit fraction $\frac{3 ft}{1 yd}$ to change yard to feet and the unit fraction $\frac{12 inches}{1 ft}$ to change feet to inches. Notice how all the units divide out except inches, which is the unit you want in the answer. 10/3 Yd * $\frac{3 ft}{1 yd}$ * $\frac{12 inches}{1 ft}$ = 120 inch
