## How to Convert Yards to Kilometers

*Example: How many kilometers are equivalent to 14.78 yards?*

As;

1 yards = 0.000914 kilometers

14.78 yards = Y kilometers

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

Y equals 14.78 times 0.000914 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 14.78 * 0.000914 / 1 = 0.01350892 kilometers

Answer is: 0.01350892 kilometers are equivalent to 14.78 yards.
