Hi, assuming this is for material on a roll, you need to know the weight per square yard or meter, or the weight per linear yard or meter, and you need to know the width of the material on the roll.

If you can find this info, we can help you, post back here.

Lets consider 1 kg, which we know is $9.50 and work out how many yards.
1) 160 gsm is 160 grams per sq. meter or g/m. A kilogram is 1000 g
1000 g x 1 m/160 g = 6.25 m

2) The inch is legally defined as 0.0254 m or 25.4 mm
60" x 0.0254 m/in = 1.524 m
6.25 m/1.524 m = 4.101 m ($9.50 worth is 4.101 m long)

3) The yard is legally defined as 0.9144 m
4.101 m x 1 yd/0.9144 m = 4.485 yd

4) Price is $9.50/4.485 yd = $2.12 per yd.


This would be much easier in metric as $9.50 kg would be $1.52 per sq. meter or $2.32 per linear meter. Two conversions would be avoided.

The easiest way to convert the fabric kg to fabric yard is as bellow
if the fabric width is 60" and fabric weight is 200 gsm,

constant formula is "43056"

43056/(60x200) = 3.588 yards

now if the fabric price is $ 9.50/kg what price of per yard

$9.50/3.588 = $ 2.647/yard.

Hope you have got the answer.

No. not without considerable additional information, and then the conversion will be specific to the situation and info.

One unit is mass, the other length.
