How many pool laps to swim 437 yards?

This can be determined by dividing the total distance to be swum by the distance of one lap. For example: For a short course pool of 25 yards, one lap is the distance from one end of the pool to the other and back. One lap in this pool is 50 yards. Therefore, dividing the total distance to be swum by the length of one lap, we get, 437/50=8.74 laps so it takes 8.74 laps to swim 437 yards in this pool.

How many miles have you swam if you swam 50 laps in a 25 yard pool?

It depends on what you call a lap. Does down and back equal one lap or does from one end to the other equal one lap? 25 yards is 75 feet. 50 x 75 =3750 feet if one end to the other is one lap. 7500 feet if down and back is one lap. 3750feet is roughly 3/4 of one mile. 7500 feet is roughly 1 1/2 miles.
