Converting centimeters to yards is a conversion between units from separate unit systems - centimeters are metric (SI) defined units while yards are US Customary / UK Imperial .

SI Unit

Within the SI (metric) system of measurement, the centimeter is officially defined as one hundredth (1/100) of a meter. It is commonly used as measurement from shorter lengths. Internationally it is spelled 'centimetre' whereas the U.S. spells it 'centimeter'. The symbol for centimeters is cm.

Customary/Imperial Unit

The yard is a measure of length between two points within the US Customary and British Imperial measurement systems. The official length of a yard (international yard) is defined as 0.9144 meters. A yard is equal to three feet or thirty-six inches in the US and Great Britain. A half yard is eighteen inches while a quarter yard is nine inches. Yards are commonly used when measuring fabric and the yardstick is a common measuring implement in these nations. In the US, the yard is most frequently associated with American football as 100 yards are marked on the field and its measurement is integral to play.
