## How to Convert Feet Square to Yards Square

*Example: How many yards square are equivalent to 56.5 feet square?*

As;

1 feet square = 0.111111 yards square

56.5 feet square = Y yards square

Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;

Y equals 56.5 times 0.111111 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 56.5 * 0.111111 / 1 = 6.2777715 yards square

Answer is: 6.2777715 yards square are equivalent to 56.5 feet square.
