There are 3 feet in one yard, so 3 feet x 4 yards= 12 feet then add 12 feet to 2 feet = 14 feet - - the answer.

1 yd   = 3 ft

4 yds  2 ft   =  12  + 2 ft  = 14 ft

there are 3feet in a yard

4yds + 2ft

=4yds x 3ft/yds + 2ft

=12ft + 2ft

4yds+ 2ft =

4yds * 3ft/1yds + 2ft =

12ft + 2ft =

14ft

Notice yds in the numerator and yds in the denominator cancel each other between step 2 and step 3.

1 yard = 3 feet

4 yards = 12 feet

Then add on the 2 extra feet

1 yard = 3 feet

so 4 yards = 12 feet

(4 x 3 = 12)

12 feet + 2 feet = 14 feet
