**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.

**Meter Square** (abbreviation: **m2**): is the SI derived unit of area. It is the area of a square whose sides measure exactly one metre. The square metre 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 of a second.

## How to Convert Yards Square to Meters Square

*Example: How many meters square are equivalent to 42.6 yards square?*

As;

1 yards square = 0.836127 meters square

42.6 yards square = Y meters square

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

Y equals 42.6 times 0.836127 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 42.6 * 0.836127 / 1 = 35.6190102 meters square

Answer is: 35.6190102 meters square are equivalent to 42.6 yards square.
