Conversion: Yards to Meters

One yard is 3 feet or 36 inches, while one meter is 39.37 inches. This makes one yard to be about 0.9155 meters. But for practical use, we can approximate and use the rate 1 yard = 0.9 meters.

We can easily do that if we apply MSC-8 multiplying by 9.

In this case we can use the fact that 0.9 is 1 – 0.1.   Let us see some examples:

  • 10 yard = 10 -1 = 9 meters
  • 20 yards = 20 -2 = 18 meters
  • 35 yards = 35 – 3.5 = 31.5 meters
  • 67.5 yards = 67.5 – 6.75 = 60.75 meters
