Unit Definition (mile)
The mile is one of the most common measurements of distance. It originates from the Latin word for 1000, 'mille'. Originally a mile was the distance a Roman legion could march in 1000 paces. In medieval Britain, several mile units were used, including the modern mile defined as 8 furlongs (1609 meters). Note that French, Scottish and Irish miles varied from the English. In 1592, Parliament defined the statute mile to be 8 furlongs or 1609.344 meters.

Unit Definition (yard)
The yard is a fundamental unit of length in both the U.S. Customary System and the British Imperial System. Originally taken to be the average length of a stride, the yard is actually equal to 3 feet; defined as 91.44 centimeters
