Answer:

#"2 yd = 1.8 m"#

Explanation:

Let's use one conversion factor you should know:

#"1 in = 2.54 cm"#

Then

#2 color(red)(cancel(color(black)("yd"))) × (3 color(red)(cancel(color(black)("ft"))))/(1 color(red)(cancel(color(black)("yd")))) × (12 color(red)(cancel(color(black)("in"))))/(1 color(red)(cancel(color(black)("ft")))) × (2.54 color(red)(cancel(color(black)("cm"))))/(1 color(red)(cancel(color(black)("in")))) × "1 m"/(100 color(red)(cancel(color(black)("cm")))) = "1.8 m"#
