Your question is phrased wrong. You can't convert sq inches into yards. Yards implies a straight line and sq inches implies area. But you can do square yards into square inches. A square yard is 3ft by 3ft or 9 square feet. Each square foot is 12 inches by 12 inches or 144 square inches. 9 X 144 = 1296. So, 1 sq yd equals 1,296 sq in. Did that help?
Convert the seven (7) inches into a decimal (12 inches = one foot) 7 inches divided by 12 inches = .583 inches Now multiply the length times the width.. 13 feet x 19.583 = 254.58 square feet If you want to know how many yards are in this area, divide this by 9 (there are 9 square feet in a yard) 254.58 divided by 9 = 28.29 square yards
