**Hint**: Given are the units of measuring the distance. Both miles and yards are generally used in measuring the travel distances. Now we should know what 1 mile equals to yards. And that will be used to find the solution for the above problem.

**Complete step by step solution:**

Generally we use meters, kilometers in the measurement of distances.

But miles and yards are also used in the measurement of distances.

We know that, 1 mile=1760 yards.

So 3 miles is equals to \[ = 3 \times 1760 = 5280\;rds\]

Thus this is the correct answer.

3 miles = 5280 yards

**So, the correct answer is “ 5280 yards”.**

**Note**: Note that when we move from or convert a smaller unit into a bigger unit we use division.

\[yards \to miles\left[ {\dfrac{{yards}}{{1760}} = miles} \right]\]

This is if yards are given and asked to find the miles.

In other cases, when we move from or convert a bigger unit into a smaller unit we use multiplication.

\[miles \to yards\left[ {miles \times 1760 = yards} \right]\]

This is if miles are given and asked to find the yards. As in the case above.
