# 1 Meter equals How many Yards?

There are various measures in maths which are written as the units of length like meter, yards, feet, inches etc. These units are basically used for specifying the dimensions of areas like some garden or track or field etc. For instance, if we have a rectangular field having the length and breadth as 40 meter & 50 meter, then its area can be calculated as 40 x 50 = 2000 meter Square. We can convert this value to other units also like yards; for converting meters to yards we would multiply the quantity by a conversion factor 1.09 and back from yards to meters by multiplying by a factor 0.91. Thus we can find in 1 meter equals how many yards are there as follows:

1 meter = 1.09 yards,

Or 1 yard = 0.91 meters,

Let us take an example of the following:

Example 1: Convert 120 meters into equivalent yards?

Solution: We can do so by using the above formula as follows:

1 meter = 1.09 yards

So 120 meters = 120 x 1.09 yards = 130.8 yards.

Example 2: Find the area of a Rectangle in yards square unit whose length and breadth are given as 20 meters and 30 meters respectively?

Solution: We would be using the usual way of evaluating the area of the rectangle as follows:

Area of rectangle = Length x Breadth,

Substituting the values of the length and breadth in the above formula we get area of rectangle as:

Area of rectangle = 20 x 30 = 600 meters square

To convert it into yards square we would follow the steps as:

1 meter = 1.09 yards,

Squaring both sides we get:

1 meter square = 1.1881 approx.

So, the area of the rectangle in yards square can be calculated as:

600 meters = 600 x 1.1881 yards square = 712.86 yards square.
