patty bought 24 yards of fencing to put around her garden. she only used 20 yards. how many feet of fencing did she have left over?

Is that the entire question?
24  20 = ?

2420 gives the number of yards remaining. Then multiply this by 3 because there are three feet in a yard. This results in 12 feet.
