## How to Convert Inches Square to Yards Square

*Example: How many yards square are equivalent to 87.44 inches square?*

As;

1 inches square = 0.000772 yards square

87.44 inches square = Y yards square

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

Y equals 87.44 times 0.000772 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 87.44 * 0.000772 / 1 = 0.06750368 yards square

Answer is: 0.06750368 yards square are equivalent to 87.44 inches square.
