Customary/Imperial Unit

The mile is a measure of distance between two points used within the US Customary and British Imperial units of measure. It is customarily used to measure large geographical distances. The mile is officially defined as 5,280 feet, 1,760 yards or 1,609.344 meters. The abbreviation or for miles is 'mi' or sometimes 'm' as in miles per hour.

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.
