## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from meters to yards is 1.0936132983377, which means that 1 meter is equal to 1.0936132983377 yards:

1 m = 1.0936132983377 yd

To convert 8.5 meters into yards we have to multiply 8.5 by the conversion factor in order to get the length amount from meters to yards. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 m → 1.0936132983377 yd

8.5 m → L(yd)

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

L(yd) = 8.5 m × 1.0936132983377 yd

L(yd) = 9.2957130358705 yd

The final result is:

8.5 m → 9.2957130358705 yd

We conclude that 8.5 meters is equivalent to 9.2957130358705 yards:
