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.
|  |  |  |
----------

57.33 sq yd = 9 x 57.33 sq ft = 515.97 sq ft.
