Converting Square feet to yards

I am purchasing wallpaper for two locker rooms. The width of the wallpaper is 39.37" and it is sold by the yard. The women's locker room is 609 sq ft + 10% = 670 sq ft and the men's locker room is 547 sq ft + 10% = 602 sq ft. How many yards do I need to order? Thank you for your help~

Re: Converting Square feet to yards

39.37 inches / 12 = 3.281 feet
1 yard * 3 = 3 feet
3.281 feet * 3 feet = 9.843 square feet

So each yard of wallpaper covers 9.843 square feet.

You need a total of:
670 square feet + 602 square feet = 1272 square feet

Now calculate yards:
1272 square feet / 9.843 square feet/yard = 129.229 yards

This is assuming you calculated the square feet of each wall, not the square feet of the room itself.
