## Square Yards Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the square yards of an area.

SY = L * W

- Where SY is the square yards (yd^2)
- L is the length of the area in yards
- W is the width of the area in yards

## What does SY stand for?

SY is most often used to described square yards which is a unit of measure of area, denoted yd^2.

## Example Problem

How to calculate square yards?

**First, determine the length of the area.**In this example, the length of the area is measured to be 50 ft.

**Next, determine the width of the area.**For this problem, the width is measured to be 100 ft.

**Next, multiply the length by the width to get the square area.**The square area is calculated to be 50*100 = 5000 ft^2.

**Finally, convert the area units into square yards.**In this example, we need to convert square feet to square yards. This is done by dividing the result from above by 9.

SY = 500 / 9

SY = 555.55 square yards (yd^2)
