Is a Meter Longer Than a Yard?

1 metre = 39.37 inches, or 1.0936 yards. One yard is equivalent to 91.44 centimetres, but one metre is 100 cm.

To convert metres to yards, multiply the total length by 1.0936. To convert yards to metres, divide the total yardage by 91.44.

A yard was initially intended to reflect the length of an average person’s stride, but a metre represents the distance light travels in a vacuum in approximately 1/3000th of a second. Since 1983, this has been its official destination.
