I am purchasing carpet for $14.00 per sq. yd. I need an area that is 1,100 sq. ft. carpeted. What would the total cost be to carpet this area and what is the formula for this answer? Thanks so much!

Re: convert sq. ft. to sq. yd.
Hi, I am trying to figure out how to convert 1400ft squared to blank squared yards...I keep finding the answer in previous sites but I can't figure out HOW they get that answer, can you break it down for me?
In linear measure, 3 ft = 1 yd
In area measurement, 3² ft² = 9 ft² = 1 yd²
For volume 3³ ft³ = 27 ft³ = 1 yd³
So 1400 ft² x 1 yd²/9 ft² = 155.6 yd²Last edited by JohnS; 08192010, 04:44 PM.

1 yard = 3 feet
60 inches / 12 = 5 feet
3 feet * 5 feet = 15 square foot per linear yard
$5.25 per linear yard / 15 square foot/linear yard = $0.35 / square foot
