## How to Convert Yards to Centimeters

*Example: How many centimeters are equivalent to 5.48 yards?*

As;

1 yards = 91.44 centimeters

5.48 yards = Y centimeters

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

Y equals 5.48 times 91.44 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 5.48 * 91.44 / 1 = 501.0912 centimeters

Answer is: 501.0912 centimeters are equivalent to 5.48 yards.
