## What is the relationship between yards and meters?

1 yard contains 0.9144 meters. Alternatively, 1 meter is equal to 1.093613 yards.

Meters and yards are units of distance or length, but they belong to different unit systems.

Yards belong to the imperial system and are represented using the abbreviation yd. On the other hand, meters belong to the metric system and are represented using the abbreviation m.

## How to convert yards to meters?

To convert from yards to meters, we have to multiply the yards by 0.9144. Therefore, we can form the following formula:

#### Example 1:

How many meters are equal to 3 yards?

To find the number of meters, we are going to multiply the yards by 0.9144. Therefore, we have:

d(m) = 3×0.9144

d(m) = 2.7432 m

#### Example 2:

Find the number of meters that are equal to 7.5 yards.

Multiplying the number of yards by 0.9144, we have:

d(m) = 7.5×0.9144

d(m) = 6.858 m

#### Example 3:

Determine the number of meters that are equal to 15 yards.

Multiplying the yards by 0.9144, we have:

d(m) = 15×0.9144

d(m) = 13.716 m
