That depends on what you are trying to do.

Are you converting square feet to square yard? Or trying to determine how many yards (volume) of something to cover so many square feet?

I have 1500 sq feet of floor how many yards do I have

Is this for carpet? That depends on the standard width of a roll of carpet.

If the carpet is sold by the square yard, then it is easy, as 1500 square feet equals 166.67 yards.

But if the carpet is sold by length, one yard is equal to 3 feet * width of roll in feet.

square feet / width of carpet in feet = linear feet of carpet needed

linear feet / 3 = yards

Hi, a square yard 9 square feet. A yard is 3 foot long, so 3' by 3' = 9'. to find out your area in square feet, multiply 166 by 9 = 1494 square feet.

Carpet is often a few yards wide, so you are unlikely to need 1494 feet of carpet.

You can convert square feet to square yards on the area conversion page:
http://www.onlineconversion.com/area.htm

If you are trying to calculate cubic yards, such as yards of dirt you need, you will also need to provide the thickness.

Hi, to answere your Question is simple the general rule of thumb to find out square footage in a room is to simply X the width of the room by the length of the room for example a standard 12X12 foot room would be 144sq.ft. in your case a 14 X 14 room would be 196sq.ft. Now to find out how many yards that is? all U have to do is divide by nine, wich in Ur case & size room
would be aproximately 21 3/4 yds. (just under 22 yards) Now generally Carpet comes in twelve foot widths, wich means you would have to (in ur case) buy
a little extra carpet (in the length) to allow for a full length seem in the width.
wich given ur measurements would be about 2 feet 6 inches, & that would give u 6 2 foot X 2 1/2 foot fills to run the carpet grain in the same direction & complete ur seem! Ps. if ur room is exactly 14 feet it will leave u very little or no space to take off salvage for a nice clean seem edge, so u will probably have to get at least three feet extra carpet in the length & use only 5 slighty wider fills for ur seem! sounds complicated i know... But really once u get the
Jist of it all it's really quite Simple Good Luck...Pss.- They do sell alot of berber style carpets in 15 foot widths, as well as some plush & comercial grades too... So if U do go with a 15 foot width carpet, obviously all U would have to buy is a carpet that is 14 feet long-assuming U measured & allowed at least 3 to 6 inches for your doorway jam that enters to the length of ur room... Again good luck! Need Any Questions Answered, Or Help, Feel free to contact me Thanks... Carpet Chris, the carpet guy...

22x35= 770 sq ft. 80 sq feet to 1 yard of cement. You will need 9.625 yards of cement. That will be at a thickness of 3.5 inches. I would suggest rounding up to 10 yards just in case your thicker in other spots.

I want to purchase a canvas flooring with a width of 83, And I need to know how much canvas would I need with a room with 12 by12 square foot and 16 by 9 square foot. I would like to know how much canvas would I need

A width of 83 what? Inches?

Each room is 144 ft², total 288 ft²

If your 83 width is inches, that's 6.916 ft,
you need 288 ft²/6.916 ft = 41.7 ft of the canvas.

That does not allow for any scrap from cutting to fit odd pieces. I would allow an extra 10% for scrap, say 46 ft. You may also want the installer to do final measurements and determine exactly how much. I don't know if you lose anything joining pieces, etc.

need to cover 1500 sq. feet with one foot deep need to know have many yards of material i need

1500 ft2 * 1 ft deep = 1500 ft3
1500 ft3 / 27 ft3/yd3 = 55.56 yd3

That is mathematical correct but, if you fill an area to a given depth with a material that will compact, such as dirt, you will need to add additional material to compensate for the compaction.

Each roll is about 56 ft². You will need at least 5 rolls. You would need to know how long the pieces are to fit the walls to work out waste from the repeat pattern.

You need to know the thickness, but first convert all to the same base unit, such as feet or yards.

square feet * thickness in feet = cubic feet
cubic feet / 27 cubic feet/cubic yard = cubic yards

Avg depth of ramp = 0.5 ft (6 inches)
3.833' x 4.083' x 0.5' = 7.827 ft³

Divide 2" by 12 to get ft
672 ft x 60 ft x (2/12) ft = 6720 ft³
divide by 27 ft³/yd³ for cubic yards, for 249 yd³.

That is geometrical. The dirt is delivered loose and will pack down. I'd allow another 20% for compacting, say 300 yd³ (299 if you split hairs)
