## Calculation

## Examples

### Consider that a high-end golf course has a fairway measuring 450 yards.

Convert this distance from yards to Meters.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The length in yards is:

Length_{(Yards)} = 450

**Formula:**

The formula to convert length from yards to meters is:

Length_{(Meters)} = Length_{(Yards)} × 0.9144

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Length _{(Yards)} = 450** in the above formula.

Length_{(Meters)} = 450 × 0.9144

Length_{(Meters)} = 411.48

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **450 yd** is equal to **411.48 m**.

The length is **411.48 m**, in meters.

### Consider that a luxury mansion has a backyard that extends 200 yards.

Convert this length from yards to Meters.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The length in yards is:

Length_{(Yards)} = 200

**Formula:**

The formula to convert length from yards to meters is:

Length_{(Meters)} = Length_{(Yards)} × 0.9144

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Length _{(Yards)} = 200** in the above formula.

Length_{(Meters)} = 200 × 0.9144

Length_{(Meters)} = 182.88

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **200 yd** is equal to **182.88 m**.

The length is **182.88 m**, in meters.
