mount everset is 29,029 feet above sea level. How many yards above sea level is Mount Everest?

Would I divide 29,029 by 3?
9,976 feet above sea level
Would this be correct?

Thank You.

A football field is 100 yards long. When I was a child, my house was on a small lot that was about 30 yards deep.

You had the right answer, but stated it as feet not yards.
