Yard to mile conversion explanation

Unlike units in the International System of Units (SI), where prefixes are used to denote varying powers of 10 of a base unit, units of measurement in the imperial and US customary systems of measurement are more arbitrary. To convert between units, it is necessary to remember or reference conversion factors. As mentioned above,

1760 yd = 1 mi

1 yd = mi
