## Yards

The yard is a unit of length measurement equal to 3 feet or 36 inches.
The international yard is legally defined to be equal to exactly 0.9144 meters.^{[1]}

The yard is a US customary and imperial unit of length. Yards can be abbreviated as *yd*, for example 1 yard can be written as 1 yd.

## Centimeters

One centimeter is equal to one-hundredth (1/100) of a meter, which is defined as the distance light travels in a vacuum in a ^{1}/_{299,792,458} second time interval.

The centimeter, or centimetre, is a multiple of the meter, which is the SI base unit for length. In the metric system, "centi" is the prefix for 10^{-2}. Centimeters can be abbreviated as *cm*, for example 1 centimeter can be written as 1 cm.

Metric rulers typically have 30 cm, which are represented by 30 large tick marks. To get a rough idea of the actual length of a centimeter, a standard pencil is just about 1cm thick.

We recommend using a ruler or tape measure for measuring length, which can be found at a local retailer or home center. Rulers are available in imperial, metric, or combination with both values, so make sure you get the correct type for your needs.

If you need a ruler you can also download and print our free printable rulers, which include both imperial and metric measurements.
