## How to Convert Yards to Miles

*Example: How many miles are equivalent to 12.48 yards?*

As;

1 yards = 0.000568 miles

12.48 yards = Y miles

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

Y equals 12.48 times 0.000568 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 12.48 * 0.000568 / 1 = 0.00708864 miles

Answer is: 0.00708864 miles are equivalent to 12.48 yards.
