There can be no equivalence. An inch is a measure of length in 1-dimensional space while a square yard is a measure of area in 2-dimensional space. The two measure different things and, according to basic principles of dimensional analysis, any attempt at conversion from one to the other is fundamentally flawed.

1 (square yard) = 1,296 square inches. As asked the question is nonsense; they measure different things:

Inches are a measure of length; whereas

Square yards are a measure of area.

1 yd = 36 in

If you are referring to the perimeter around an area of 1 square yard, then it can be any length greater than or equal to the smallest length which is that of a circle of area 1 sq yd which is 12√π inches ≈ 21.27 in

If you were actually being lazy and actually meant how many SQUARE inches in 1 square yard, then:

1 sq yd = 1 yd × 1 yd = 36 in × 36 in = 1296 SQUARE inches.

There are 1296 square inches in 1 square yard. This is because 1 square yard is equal to 3 feet by 3 feet, which is 36 inches by 36 inches, equal to 1296 square inches.

A square yard is equal to 36 inches across and 36 inches down, therefore, 362 = 1296. A square yard is equal to 1296 square inches.

36 because there are 3 feet in a yard and 12 inches in a foot.

An inch is a unit of length. A square yard is a unit of area. The two units are therefore incompatible.
