## How to Convert Centimeters to Yards

*Example: How many yards are equivalent to 21.8 centimeters?*

As;

1 centimeters = 0.010936 yards

21.8 centimeters = Y yards

Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;

Y equals 21.8 times 0.010936 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 21.8 * 0.010936 / 1 = 0.2384048 yards

Answer is: 0.2384048 yards are equivalent to 21.8 centimeters.
