It depends on the square yard you're talking about. If it is 1 yard by 1 yard, the perimeter will be 4 yard. If it is 1/2 yard by 2 yards, the perimeter will be 5 yards. If it is 1/4 yard by 4 yards, the perimeter will be 8.5 yards. In general, you will x yards by y yards with xy=1 and 2x+2y =p.

There are 36 inches in a yard (12 inches per foot times 3 feet per yard), so a square yard is 36 times 36 or 1,296 square inches. So 1,600 square inches is greater.

The area of a rectangle 12 inches by 12 yards is 5184 square inches, since 12 inches * 12 yards * 36 inches/yard = 5184 square inches.

1296
