## How to Convert Kilometers to Yards

*Example: How many yards are equivalent to 83.17 kilometers?*

As;

1 kilometers = 1093.613 yards

83.17 kilometers = Y yards

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

Y equals 83.17 times 1093.613 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 83.17 * 1093.613 / 1 = 90955.79321 yards

Answer is: 90955.79321 yards are equivalent to 83.17 kilometers.
