# Yards to Meters Formula

Before learning the yards to meters formula, let us recall what are yards and meters. Both yards and meters are units of length. Meter is the SI unit for measuring length. Both the units are interchangeable. Yards to meters formula helps in converting a length given in meters to yards. Let us learn about the yards to meters formula with a few examples in the following sections.

## What Is the Yards to Meters Formula?

We have to simply multiply the length given in yards by 0.9144, to convert it into meters. The yards to meters formula is shown below. This formula is very helpful in dealing with the problems with measuring length.

1 yard = 0.9144 meter

(or)

n yards = n × 0.9144 meters

Let us see the applications of the yards to meters formula in the solved examples section below.

## Examples Using Yards to Meters Formula

**Example 1:** Sam measures a length of a line on the ground as 5 yards. Convert the measured length into meters.

**Solution:**

To find: 5 yards in meters.

Given:

Length = 5 yards

1 yard = 0.9144 meters

Using yards to meters formula,

1 yard = 0.9144 meters

For n yards = n × 0.9144 meters

Therefore,

5 yards = 0.9144 × 5

= 4.572 meters

**Answer:** The length of the line on the ground (in meters) is 4.572

**Example 2:** The length of one side of a plot is 43.7 yards. What will the same length of a plot in meters?

**Solution:**

To find: Length of a plot in meters.

Given:

The length of one side of a plot = 43.7 yards.

1 yard = 0.9144 meters

Using yards to meters formula,

1 yard = 0.9144 meters

For n yards = n × 0.9144 meters

Therefore, 43.7 yards = 0.9144 × 43.7

= 39.96 meters

**Answer:** The length of one side of a plot in meters is 39.96
