The formula is expressed as:
nmi ÷ 0 = yd

Converting nautical miles to yards is a conversion between units from separate unit systems - nautical miles are International Hydrographic defined units while yards are US Customary / UK Imperial .

International Hydrographic Unit

The nautical mile is a distance measurement, usually between two geographic points. It is officially defined as being equal to 1,852 meters. The nautical mile, or international nautical mile can be found abbreviated as either M, NM, nmi or nm. Historically the nautical mile was defined as 1/16th of a degree of the earth's latitude. Given this correlation with latitude and longitude, the nautical mile has closely been associated with measurements for navigation. This tradition continues to this day as it remains the unit used to measure distance by the maritime and aviation industries. The prevalent unit of speed over water and air is the knot (nautical miles per hour).

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.
