The correct answer to this question is B, three ft/1 yds. This is the correct answer because the yards must cancel. To do so, the yard must be one, making it 3ft =1 yd, which in fraction form translates to 3ft/1yd. This type of question would be found on a math test, for ft and yd are both abbreviations for measurements. Ft stands for the foot. Yd stands for the yard.

Fractions are also important to measurements because they can provide conversions between different units of measurements. When measuring, it is important to calculate properly to not only get the correct answer but also not over the measure.

I am understanding there must be a mistake here because that would mean 3x = 6
which means x = 2 from that view point.

3 ft/1 yd

The correct answer is 3ft/1yd since the yards units must cancel and 3 ft = 1 yd.
