Before we get into discussing how to convert yards to meters, lets define a yard. A yard is a unit of length in the U.S. Customary System which is equivalent to 3 feet and is abbreviated as yd.

While a meter is a metric unit of length and is abbreviated as m.

### Formula to Convert Yards to Meters.

Since we know that 1 yard is equivalent to 0.9144 meters.

We can say that, to convert yards to m we multiply the yards by 0.9144.

**Length in m = Length in yd x 0.9144**

**Example 1:**

Convert 200 yd to meters.

**= 200 x 0.9144**

**= 38.88 meters.**

**Example 2:**

Suppose the dimensions of a football field are 115 yards in length and 55 yards in width, what are the dimensions of the field in meters.

Since 1 yard is equivalent to 0.9144 meters.

**Length**

**= 115 x 0.9144**

**= 105.156 meters.**

**Width**

**= 55 x 0.9144**

**= 50.292 meters.**
