Answer

2.9 m (rounded)

Work Step by Step

3.2 yd to meters We’re changing from a U.S length unit to a metric length unit. In the “U.S. to Metric Units” side of the table, you see that 1 yard = 0.91 meter. Two unit fractions can be written using that information.(1 yard)/(0.91 meter) Or(0.91 meter)/(1 yard). Multiply by the unit fraction that allows you to divide out yard (that is, yard is in the denominator). 3.2yd *(0.91 meter)/(1 yard) = 2.912 meters = 2.9 m (rounded)
