### How many yards are in a mile?

• A.

1,760

• B.

500

• C.

1,000

• D.

3,000

A. 1,760
Explanation
One mile is equivalent to 1,760 yards. This is derived from the historical definition of a mile as 5,280 feet, and since there are 3 feet in a yard, the conversion is calculated as 5,280Ã·3=1,7605,280 \div 3 = 1,760 yards. This conversion is foundational in understanding distances in various applications such as athletics and surveying.

### How many yards are in an acre?

• A.

4840

• B.

500

• C.

4046.86

• D.

1,000

A. 4840
Explanation
An acre, primarily a measure of area, can be converted into square yards. Since one acre is 43,560 square feet and there are 9 square feet in a square yard, 43,560Ã·9=4,84043,560 \div 9 = 4,840 square yards. This conversion is crucial for real estate and agricultural planning.

### How many yards are in a ton (assuming topsoil)?

• A.

200

• B.

50

• C.

100

• D.

400

A. 200
Explanation
Calculating how many yards are in a ton of a material like topsoil involves understanding the material’s density. Typically, a cubic yard of topsoil weighs about 2,000 pounds (or 1 ton). Hence, one ton of topsoil is approximately one cubic yard, focusing on the volume rather than linear yard measurement.

### How many yards are in 4 acres?

• A.

19,360

• B.

20,000

• C.

16,000

• D.

10,000

A. 19,360
Explanation
To find how many yards are in 4 acres, you must first convert acres to square yards. Since one acre is 4,840 square yards, four acres would be 4,840Ã—4=19,3604,840 \times 4 = 19,360 square yards. This measurement is important in fields requiring large-scale land assessments.

### How many yards is a quarter mile?

• A.

440

• B.

500

• C.

350

• D.

400

A. 440
Explanation
A quarter mile is 440 yards, derived from the total yards in a mile. Since a mile is 1,760 yards, dividing this by 4 gives 1,760Ã·4=4401,760 \div 4 = 440 yards. This measure is often used in track and field events.

Rate this question:

### How many yards is a soccer field?

• A.

100

• B.

120

• C.

130

• D.

110

B. 120
Explanation
A standard soccer field is generally around 120 yards in length, though this can vary slightly depending on the specific regulations of the league. The length facilitates the play of the game, balancing sufficient space for player movement and strategic positioning.

Rate this question:

• 8.

### How many yards in 15 feet?

• A.

5

• B.

15

• C.

45

• D.

3

A. 5
Explanation
There are 3 feet in a yard, thus to convert 15 feet into yards, divide by 3. The calculation is straightforward: 15Ã·3=5 yards. This basic conversion is frequently used in everyday measurements and smaller-scale projects.

### How many yards in 100 meters?

• A.

109.361

• B.

100

• C.

120

• D.

130

A. 109.361
Explanation
The conversion from meters to yards is based on the fact that one meter is approximately 1.09361 yards. Therefore, to find out how many yards are in 100 meters, multiply 100 by 1.09361, yielding approximately 109.361 yards. This conversion is crucial for track and field events and international sports where metric units are used.
