YES !!! BY about 3.3 inches.

1 metre = 1 yd 0 ft 3.3 ins.

The conversion factgor between inches and centimetres is 1 inch = 2.54cm.

Since there are 3ft = 36 inches in 1 yard.

Then 36 inches X 2.54 = 91.44 cm = 0.9144 m

Or reversing the process.

There are 100 cm in 1 metre.

Dividing

100 /2.54 = 39.37007874 inches in 1 metres.

39.37007874 = 1 yd(3ft) 3.37007874 ins.

Hence

It follows that 1 m > 1 yd.
