## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from miles to yards is 1760, which means that 1 mile is equal to 1760 yards:

1 mi = 1760 yd

To convert 3 miles into yards we have to multiply 3 by the conversion factor in order to get the length amount from miles to yards. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 mi → 1760 yd

3 mi → L(yd)

Solve the above proportion to obtain the length L in yards:

L(yd) = 3 mi × 1760 yd

L(yd) = 5280 yd

The final result is:

3 mi → 5280 yd

We conclude that 3 miles is equivalent to 5280 yards:

3 miles = 5280 yards

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 yard is equal to 0.00018939393939394 × 3 miles.

Another way is saying that 3 miles is equal to 1 ÷ 0.00018939393939394 yards.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that three miles is approximately five thousand two hundred eighty yards:

3 mi ≅ 5280 yd

An alternative is also that one yard is approximately zero times three miles.
