3/4 miles is equal to how many yards?

### 4 Answers | Add Yours

This is proportional math.

1760 yards = 1 mile

X yards = .75 mile

We agree that 3/4 is equal to .75? So X is then number we are missing? With proportions, you cross multiply, and then divide by the number left, in our case that is one...which makes this easy!

All that is left is to multiply 1760 and .75 for your answer!

Is 1320 reasonable? Are you looking for less than one mile?

I love proportional reasoning! It takes the guess work out of conversion...just make sure you line up the same words on each side....

1320 yards

1 mile = 1760 yards

1760 x 3/4 = 1320 yards

1760 yards = 1 mile

3/4 miles = 1320 yards

1 mile = 1760 yards

0.75 miles= 1760*0.75= **1760 yards**
