## How to Convert Miles to Yards

*Example: How many yards are equivalent to 21.76 miles?*

As;

1 miles = 1760 yards

21.76 miles = Y yards

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

Y equals 21.76 times 1760 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 21.76 * 1760 / 1 = 38297.6 yards

Answer is: 38297.6 yards are equivalent to 21.76 miles.
