Hi there,

A yard is made up of 3 feet. 1 Foot has 12 inches. If we rewrite our equation in inches we get:

5 * (3 * 12) - [3 * (3 *12) + 1 * (12) + 7] = ?
180 inches - [108 + 12 + 7] = ?
180 inches - 127 inches = 53 inches

Which can be divided by 12 to find feet:
53/12 = 4 feet 5 inches

Which can be divided by 3 feet to find yards:
4 feet 5 inches = 1 yard, 1 foot, 5 inches

To recap, the answer is 53 inches, or 4 feet 5 inches, or 1 yard, 1 foot and 5 inches.
