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.

You have to swim 20 laps of the pool in a 500 yard race. One lap is considered one length of the pool, or 25 yards. In the 500, you are allowed a counter. The counter sits at the far end of the pool and shows you how many laps you have swum. The counter will show up to the number 17, then on the 19th lap, he or she will show a red sign.
