    Answer:

    10 pair of soccer shorts.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let the unknown be x.

    Translating the word problem into an algebraic equation, we have;

    2/5 yard = 1 pair of short

    4 yard = x pair of short

    Cross-multiplying, we have;

    2x/5 = 4

    Multiplying both sides by 5, we have;

    2x = 20

    x = 20/2

    x = 10 pair of soccer shorts.
