Yards are shorter than meters. The first sentence of your answer is correct, but the second part doesn't make any sense.

Yards and meters are both about 3 feet.

Report as
No they aren't.

Yeah, actually they are. A yard is three feet, a meter is three feet and three inches, like I said, "about" three feet.

I see now that you were expressing your answer in feet, so you are correct. But the question was how many yards in a meter, so if this were a math test your answer would be wrong.

The question was already answered, so I gave them something they might better be able to relate to.

All you need to remember is there are 2.54 centimeters per inch. Then you can get derive your answer for any metric conversion provided you remember there are 100 centimeters per meter, i.e. 2.54 times 12 inches per foot times 3 feet per yard = 91.44 centimeters or .9144 meters per yard. But, since you asked how many yards in a meter you need to divide 1 yard by .9144 meters = 1.0936 yards/meter. Or you can memorize all of the conversions factors.
