Yards (yd)A yard is a unit of length or distance. It is equal to three feet or 36 inches, or approximately 0.9144 meters. The symbol for "yard" is "yd".The use of the yard dates back to ancient times, and it was originally defined as the length of a man's belt or girdle, as it was a convenient measure for determining cloth lengths. The yard, foot, and inch are traditional units of length that are still in use today. A yard is equal to 3 feet or 36 inches. A foot is equal to 12 inches. An inch is equal to 1/12 of a foot or 1/36 of a yard. Together, the yard, foot, and inch are part of a system of units called the Imperial system of measurement, which was originally developed in England in the Middle Ages. While the metric system has largely replaced the Imperial system in many countries, the yard, foot, and inch are still commonly used in everyday life in some countries.
