# How do you calculate to get square yards of a room EXAMPLES?

Multiply the length of the room by the width.

### 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…

### What is the cost in dollars to steam clean a room W yards wide and L yards long if the steam cleaners charge 10 cents per square foot?

Multiply W times L to get total square yards. Then divide by 12 to get total square feet, then multiply by 10 to get total cost. If the dimensions of the room are W and L and they are in yards, then conversion to feet is a must at some point. If a room is measured in square yards, then the conversion to square feet is done by division by 32 or 9. First, W…
