How to Convert Yards to Miles

Tape measures can be used to measure units of length, and a calculator can be used to convert to another unit

To convert a yard measurement to a mile measurement, divide the length by the conversion ratio. One mile is equal to 1,760 yards, so use this simple formula to convert:

miles = yards ÷ 1,760

The length in miles is equal to the yards divided by 1,760.

For example, here's how to convert 5,000 yards to miles using the formula above.
5,000 yd = (5,000 ÷ 1,760) = 2.840909 mi
