How do you calculate square yards for wallpaper?
Measure the height of the wall from floor to ceiling.
Measure the width of the wall.
Multiply height x width = square footage.
For square yards, divide the square footage by 9.
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…
A room is 24 feet lon 18 feet wide and 9 feet high How many square yards of wallpaper are needed to paper the four walls of the room?
There are 3 feet in each yard. Therefore, in yards the dimensions given are 8 yards long, 6 yards wide, and 3 yards high. Two of the four walls have dimensions of 8 X 3 yards and the other two have dimensions of 6 X 3 yards. Therefore, the total wall area in square yards is (2 X 8 X 3) + (2 X 6 X 3) = 84 square yards.
There is no conversion between square yards and yards, because the units refer to different things. "Square yards" is a unit of area, while "yards" is a unit of length. But there is a relationship. Taking the square root of the units of square yards will give you the measure of the side of a square whose area is equal to that number of square yards. For example, an area of 4 square yards can…
