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.

One meter is equivalent to 39.370 inches. If you want to take the easy way and not learn the system use this online calculator. It has been said that the difference between ignorance and stupidity is "ignorance is never having the opportunity to learn; stupidity is having the opportunity and not taking advantage of it. http://www.metric-conversions.org/length/meters-to-inches.htm
