# How do you calculate linear feet to square yards?

The two are different units of measure.

Linear feet is a distance BETWEEN two points.

Square yards is an AREA, such as the area of a living room.

Linear feet is one dimensional.

Square yards is two dimensional.

### How many square yards are there in 60 feet by 12 feet?

You can convert from linear feet to linear yards and multiply, or you can multiply the linear feet and then divide by 9 square feet per square yard. 60 feet = 20 yards (because there are three feet to the yard) 12 feet = 4 yards 20 x 4 = 80 square yards === === 60' x 12' = 720 square feet 720/9 = 80 square yards

### 80 linear feet equals how many square yards?

This would be an unanswerable question as 80 linear feet is a linear unit and square yards is a measure of area. Now if the yard is 80 linear feet by 80 linear feet , that would be an area of 6400 square feet. Since 9 square feet occupy a square yard, that would be an area of 711 1/3 square yards. But, 80 linear feet is only a measure in one dimension and area…

### How many yards in 939 sq ft?

This can't be answered. An amount of yards measures a linear measurement - the length of one straight line. 939 square feet measures an area, such as how big your yard is. You can compare yards to feet or square yards to square feet, but comparing a linear measurement to an area measurement is impossible.

### How do you convert square yards to linear feet?

A square yard is a unit of area. A linear foot is a unit of distance. The two units are therefore incompatible. As long as you know the width you can convert square yards to linear feet. The formula I use is this... Linear feet = ((36SY)/w)/3. SY= square yards, w=width in inches. Many say you cannot convert a measyre of area to a measure of length, but as long as you know the width…

### 13 by 22 feet room 19.50 per square yard?

Convert the feet to yards first. (3 ft / linear yard - 9 Square Ft in a Sqr Yard) 13 feet = 4.25 yards 22 feet = 7.33 yards 4.25 yards x 7.33 yards = 31.2 square yards. The price is (31.2 square yards) x ($19.50 per square yard) = $607.50 NOTE THAT If you don't convert the feet to yards first, then divide the 'cost per yard' by 9 to get the 'cost per…

### How may sqare yards are in a 12 foot by 21 foot room?

I will answer this by first converting the measurements to yards, but you could also calculate the area in feet and then convert to square yards when finished (as I will also show). There is no right or wrong way to do it. 12 feet = 12/3 = 4 yards 21 feet = 21/3 = 7 yards Thus the area of the room = 4 * 7 = 28 square yards. The other way to…

### How do you convert linear feet into square yards?

You want to convert a length or distance into an area. Feet (or yards) measure LENGTH and square feet (or square yards) measure AREA. Length can never be directly converted to an area. However, carpet and flooring installers use a formula based on the total of linear feet (length plus width) to compute the area required. This is because the material is in fixed widths and can only be installed in certain widths or directions.

### How do you calculate linear square feet?

Linear Feet and square feet are different units of measure. Linear feet (or simply feet) measure the length of an object or the perimeter of something, such as the length of a board or the total length of the four walls around a room. Square feet measure the area of an object, such as the total floor area of a room. To calculate linear feet, all you have to do is measure the length of…
