Convert from square feet to square yards

One square yard equals ft ^{2}. Use this information to converts 153 ft ^{2}to square yards.

 

Solution

 

To convert from square feet to square yards, divide the number of square feet by the number of square feet per square yard.

There are 9 square feet for every square yard.

From the previous step, it is known that 9 ft ^{2}= 1 yd ^{2}. Now to convert square feet to square yards, divide the number of square feet by 9.

153ft ^{2} = \frac{153}{9}yd^{2}

=17yd ^{2}

Therefore, 153 ft ^{2} = 17yd ^{2}
