## How do you Convert Yards to Inches?

To convert a yard measurement to an inch measurement, multiply the length by the conversion ratio. The length in inches is equal to the yards multiplied by 36.

1 yd = 36 in
1 in = 0.0277777778 yd

This relationship tells us that yards are the larger unit. To convert from a value in inches to one in yards, we need to divide by 36. To convert a value in yards to inches, we need to multiply by 36.

Example: Convert 15 yd to in:
15 yd = 15 × 36 in = 540 in
1 yard is equal to 3 inches:
1yd = 36in
The distance d in inches (in) is equal to the distance d in yards (yd) times 36:
d(in) = d(yd) × 36
