Can't be!1 yard = 36 inches, 10 yards = 36 feet1 meter = 39.37 inches.Show me where 39 inches are shorter than 36 inches.

In the rules for shooting {10 Meters (32 feet, 10 inches)}1 meter is 1.094 yards, 3.281 feet, 39.37 inches, roughly 39 1/3 inches.The target should be at 39ft 4 inches.

Mark,1 yard is 36 inches, 10 yards is 36 ft.1 meter is 39.37 inches, 10 meters is 32.81 ft.How can a measurement 3.37 inches longer multiplied by 10 be 3.19 ft shorter?I'm not from MO, but you got to show me this.

I think you guys are making this much more complicated than it has to be.....It would be so much simpler to just stick with the old definition, which says The metre is defined as the length of the path travelled by light in a vacuum in 1/299 792 458 seconds.
