**Definitions:**

**Yard Square** (abbreviations: **yd2, or sy**): is an imperial unit of area, formerly used in most of the English-speaking world but now generally replaced by the square metre, however it is still in widespread use in the U.S., Canada and the U.K. It is the area of a square with sides of one yard (three feet, thirty-six inches, 0.9144 metres) in length.

**Centimeter Square** (abbreviation: **cm2**): is the SI derived unit of area. It is the area of a square whose sides measure exactly one centimeter. The square centimeter is derived from the SI base unit of the metre, which itself is the length of the path travelled by light in absolute vacuum within time interval of 1/299,792,458 * 1/100 of a second.

## How to Convert Yards Square to Centimeters Square

*Example: How many centimeters square are equivalent to 79.99 yards square?*

As;

1 yards square = 8361.274 centimeters square

79.99 yards square = Y centimeters square

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

Y equals 79.99 times 8361.274 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 79.99 * 8361.274 / 1 = 668818.30726 centimeters square

Answer is: 668818.30726 centimeters square are equivalent to 79.99 yards square.
