## Answer

It would be a ninth of a square yard. Nine square feet would be

1 square yard.

In general, for "square" measurements, you need to square the

normal ratio. For example, there are 3 feet in a yard, so there are

3 squared, or 3*3 feet (9 feet) in a yard.

### How many yards of sand do you need to cover 1200 sq ft?

depends on the depth that you need to cover the 1200 square feet
(area) to.
there are 3 foot to 1 yard (1 foot=3 yards).
so 1 square foot = 9 square yards (3x3).
1200 square feet = 1200 x9 = 10,800 square yards.
you then multiply the 10,800 by the amount of yards (depth) that
you want to cover the area to.
