## How to Convert Inches to Yards

*Example: How many yards are equivalent to 15.39 inches?*

As;

1 inches = 0.027778 yards

15.39 inches = Y yards

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

Y equals 15.39 times 0.027778 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 15.39 * 0.027778 / 1 = 0.42750342 yards

Answer is: 0.42750342 yards are equivalent to 15.39 inches.
