1 yard = 0.9144 m (exactly)

→ 1200 yards = 1200 x 0.9144 m

= 1097.28 m (exactly)

> 100 m

→ 1200 yards are [much] longer than 100 meters.

1 yd is only slightly less than 1 m, but 1200 is over 10 times 100, so 1200 yds are [much] longer than 100 m.

If you meant 120 yards, then: 120 yds = 120 x 0.9144 m = 109.728 m > 100 m and is still the longer (by a little under 10 m); 120 yds ≈ 110 m.

There are 0.9144 meters in one yard. Therefore to get amount of meters in yards, value in yards has to be multiplied by amount or meters in one yard:

100 yards = [yards] * 0.9144 = 100 * 0.9144 = 914.4 meters

Since one yard equals 0.9144 meters, 100 yards would equal 91.44 meters, which is less than 100 meters. So, 100 meters is longer than 100 yards.

100 meters is greater. 1 meter is approximately 39 inches, which is 3 more inches than 1 yard.

100 yards = 300 feet = 300 x 30.48 cm = 9144 cm

100 meters = 100 x 100 cm = 10000 cm

difference = 10000 - 9144 cm = 856 cm

There are 0.9144 metres in one yard. Therefore, 100 yards is equal to 0.9144 x 100 = 91.44 metres.

Subtracting this from 100 metres gives 100 - 91.44 = 8.56 metres.
