One yard equals 36 inches. If you are trying to get square inches, then multiply the length times width.

While a yard of fabric is always 36 inches long, the width can be 32", 34", 36", 45", 60." Draping and sheeting material that can be bigger.

Depends on the width of the bolt of fabric. If the bolt was 44" wide, then a yard of fabric would be 44" wide by 36" long.

* A "yard" of fabric is 36 inches regardless of the width, which typically can range from 36 inches all the way up to 118 inches wide.

If you are cutting off one yard, of course the length of inches cut will be 36, but you are probably asking about the standard width of fabrics as they are sold in the store. That number varies. Some are 44 or 45 inches, some are more. The best thing to do when you are purchasing fabric is to check the end of the bolt ( the fabric is folded around a cardboard holder in the store) and the width will be written on the end.

A normal yard is 36 inches. However, a traditional clothyard is 39 inches (extra makes up for the seams) so it would depend on which one is applied in the store or area you buy from/in.

Well, a yard has 36 inches in it. If you have 100 inches you will divide it by 36, and that will give you 2.78 yds.

Six feet of fabric is the equivalent of two yards.
