Converting Square Yards to Square FeetDate: 9/12/96 at 9:51:43 From: Prince Subject: Converting Square Yards to Square Feet 57.33 sq. yds. equals ____ sq. ft? Date: 9/12/96 at 10:29:49 From: Doctor Robert Subject: Re: Converting Square Yards to Square Feet Both square yards amd square feet are units of AREA measure. If you draw a square one yard on a side and then divide each side of the square into three parts (into feet), you can easily see that 1 square yard is the same area as 9 square feet. 1 sq. yd. = 9 sq. ft. 1 Yard ---------- | | | | ---------- | | | | 1 Yard From this, you see that there are 9 ---------- square feet in 1 square yard. | | | | ---------- So your problem becomes 57.33 sq yd = 9 x 57.33 sq ft = 515.97 sq ft. -Doctor Robert, The Math Forum Check out our web site! http://mathforum.org/dr.math/ |
