### How to Convert Meter to Yards?

To convert Meter to Yards, simply divide the Meter value by 0.9144.

The formula used to calculate Meter to Yards -

**d**_{(m)} = **d**_{(yd)} / 0.9144

The distance *d* in Yards (yd) is equal to the distance *d* in Meters (m) divided by 0.9144.

### How many Yards in a Meter

In simple terms, 1 m is equal to 1.093613298338 yd.

The formula used is 1/0.9144 = 1.093613298338(yd)

### How many Meters in a Yard

1 Yard is equal to 0.9144 Meters. So we can also say that there are 0.9144 Meters in a Yard.
