### 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…
