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 8.7 miles into yards we have to multiply 8.7 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

8.7 mi → L(yd)

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

L(yd) = 8.7 mi × 1760 yd

L(yd) = 15312 yd

The final result is:

8.7 mi → 15312 yd

We conclude that 8.7 miles is equivalent to 15312 yards:

8.7 miles = 15312 yards
