The length of 500 yards is equivalent to 1,500 feet, 18,000 inches or 0.2841 of a mile. Knowing basic standard units of measurement is essential to calculating equivalent lengths.
A single yard is equal to 3 feet, and there are 12 inches in a foot. Based on these equivalent amounts, the amount of feet in 500 yards is calculated by multiplying 500 by 3.
The amount of inches in 500 yards is then found by multiplying 1,500 feet by 12 inches.
A mile is equal to 5,280 feet. Individuals may calculate how many miles are in 500 yards by dividing the amount of feet in 500 yards into 5,280. When 1,500 is divided into 5,280, the result is 0.2841.
