Q:

If you know the number of yards for a measurement, you can change that measure to meters by multiplying the number of yards by 0.9144 **Please Answer all 3**1) Write a function rule that relates meters to yards.2) How many meters are equivalent to 7,200 yards? Round the answer to the nearest hundredth, if necessary.3) How many yards are equivalent to 2,500 meters? Round to the answer to the nearest hundredth, if necessary.

Accepted Solution

A:
Question 1)

Let "y" denotes the number of yards and "m" denotes the number of meters. According to the give statement, measurement in yards can be changed to measurement in meters by multiplying the measure in yards by 0.9144.

So,

Measure in Meter = 0.9144 x Measure in Yards
m = 0.9144y

Question 2)

We are to convert 7200 yards into meters. Using the values in above equation we can write:

m = 0.9144 x 7200
m = 6583.68 meters

This means 7200 yards are equivalent to 6583.68 meters..

Question 3)

We are to convert 2500 meters to yards.
Using the value in above equation, we get:

2500=0.9144y

y = 2500/0.9144
y = 2734.03 yards

So this means 2500 meters are equivalent to 2734.03 yards.
