HOw do I convert Feet and inches into square yards?

Sandra

There are 12 inches in a foot
there are 3 feet to a yard
there are 36 inches in a yard
there are 36 x 36 = 1296 square inches in a square yard
there are 3 x 3 feet = 9 square feet in a square yard

if you are working with feet and inches, it is best to convert the feet to inches until your final calculations, it's just easier that way.
I usually will work out a problem both ways as a way to double check my work. It's just that in the working world mistakes can cost a lot of money.

I work for a concrete and asphalt company and here at work we calculate length x width = square feet.

We then divide by 9 to calculate the square yards.

So, for example:

29'5" x 20' = 590 square feet

590sf / 9 = 65.56 square yards.

To convert square yards to cubic yards (in case you need to know this):

Take your total amount of square yards (65.56sy) x 9 (sq ft in a yard) x depth (4" sidewalk or 6" driveway or 8" street, etc) then divide by 324 = cubic yards

So, 65.56 sy x 9 x 6" (driveway) = 16.39 cubic yards of concrete needed.

so how much would be 75 feet and 6 inches?

You would need to know the length and width.
I guess that was what you were really asking.

length x width = square area

By using Sandra's info above, you now know that there are 9 sq ft in 1 sq yd.

So, now all you have to do is just divide your total amount of square feet by 9 to get your answer of total square yards.

For example:

75'6" / 9 = 8.4 sq yds

12 feet / 9 = 1.33 sq yds

47' 3 " / 9 = 5.25 sq yds

100 feet / = 11.11 sq yds

One of my favorite math teachers said that math isn't learned from a book but actually from the point of a sharp pencil.

You will find that you learn more just by playing with the numbers. If we give you all the answers it won't help next time you have to do a similar problem.

how do i convert 12ft 5in (length) and 8ft 8in (width) to square yards
1 yd = 3 ft = 36 in
So 12 ft 5 in = 12/3 + 5/36 yd = 4.1389 yd
8 ft 8 in = 8/3 + 8/36 yd = 2.8889 yd
The area is the product, 11.96 yd²

Concrete calculation:

13 ft x 15 ft x 3 inches deep
7 ft x 23 ft x 3 inches deep
7 ft x 46 ft x 3 inches deep
___________________________________
13 x 15 = 195 square feet
7 x 23 = 161 square feet
7 x 46 = 322 square feet
__________________________________
195 sf / 9 = 21.67 square yards
161 sf / 9 = 17.89 square yards
322 sf / 9 = 35.78 square yards
__________________________________
21.67 sy x 9 x 3 = 1.81 cubic yards
17.89 sy x 9 x 3 = 1.49 cubic yards
35.78 sy x 9 x 3 = 2.98 cubic yards

So total cubic yards needed is 6.28 cubic yards

I hope this correct or is it?

Another way of working it out:

3 inches is 1/4 of a foot, so 0.25 feet.

There are 27 cubic feet in 1 cubic yard

(13 x 15 x 0.25) + (7 x 23 x 0.25) + (7 x 46 x 0.25) = 48.75 + 40.25 + 80.5 = 169.5ft³.

169.5 ÷ 27 = 6.28y³

Assuming it is a rectangle, it could be ANY length and width whose product is 75 yd².

Just as examples
1 yd x 75 yd
3 yd x 25 yd
5 yd x 15 yd
8.66 yd x 8.66 yd

how do i convert feet square ft into square yards.

Linear Measure: 3 ft = 1 yd
Area: 9 ft² = 1 yd²
Volume: 27 ft³ = 1 yd³

Just divide sq ft by 9 to get sq yd.

thanks if you can help

1) First do the yards, 36" = 1 yd
INT(574/36) = 15, so there are 15 yards plus a reminder
574 - 15*36 = 34" is the remainder

2) Now do feet, 12" = 1 ft
INT(34/2) =2 so there are 2 ft plus leftover
34 - 2*12 = 10 in

15 yd 2 ft 10 in

Check 36*15 + 2*12 + 10 = 574

To convert square inches into square yards, divide the square inches by 1296.

Example: 150" x 150" = 22,500 sq inches 22,500sq" divided by 1296 = 17.4 square yards.

To convert square inches to square feet, divide the square inches by 144.

Example: 150" x 150" = 22,500 sq inches 22,500 divided by 144 = 156.3 square feet.

21' x 10' x 3" = 630 sq ft. / 9 = 70 sq. yd.

To buy material, you actually need to convert to cubic yards. 3" is 0.25 ft
so 21' x 10' x 0.25' = 52.5 ft³
There are 27 ft³ in 1 yd³, so 1.95 yd³ (round up to 2 yd³)

1 yd = 3 ft = 36 in.

JohnS

How many square yards is 4" wide by 144 sq. feet?

144 sq ft is already an area, so it is not clear what 4" by 144 sq ft means.

Anyway a yd is 3 ft, so a sq yd is 9 sq ft. 144 ft² = 16 yd²

Or are you interested in volume, something 4" deep over 144 sq ft is a volume. 36 in = 1 yd so

(144/9) yd² x (4/36) yd = 1.78 yd³ (cubic yards)

Thank you

6" = 0.5 ft, so the volume you need to fill is 256 ft³. As the dirt is loaded and delivered "loose" and will compact down, I would order about 20% more, at least 307 ft³ or 11.4 yd³. It wouldn't hurt to round up to 12 yd³.
