## How to Convert Yards Square to Feet Square

*Example: How many feet square are equivalent to 17.59 yards square?*

As;

1 yards square = 9 feet square

17.59 yards square = Y feet square

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

Y equals 17.59 times 9 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 17.59 * 9 / 1 = 158.31 feet square

Answer is: 158.31 feet square are equivalent to 17.59 yards square.
