### How many square feet are there in one square yard?

A square yard [ ] is 3 foot by 3 foot so there are 9 square feet
in 1 square yard
The area of a rectangle [which includes a square] is calculated
using the formula, Length [L] times Width [W] equals the area [A]
in square units [A = L x W].
As a yard [linear] is 3 linear feet, then a square yard is NINE
square feet.
(1 yard = 3 feet)
(3 feet) times (3 feet) = 9 ft2
1 square yard = 9 square feet
A yard = 3 feet so a square yard = 3 feet x 3 feet, which is 9
square feet.
One square yard is nine square feet.
1 square yard = 9 square feet.
