A mile is used to describe a wide range of units. Originally used by the Romans, it was then used by the countries colonized by the British and it was retained by some. Most countries did switch to the metric system, but some countries still use the mile, where the international mile is used. These counties include Liberia, United Kingdom, the United States and Myanmar. Old British colonized territories still use the mile.
Finally, in order to convert the mile back to yards, simply multiply the mile value by 1760 in order to obtain the number of yards.
