A yard of carpet is a square yard There are 3 feet in one yard so a square yard is 3 x 3 = 9 square feet 1000/9 = 111 square yards

The 12 x 20 foot room has an area of 240 square feet, and the 15 x 15 foot room has an area of 225 square feet. That's 465 square feet of carpet. But hold the phone. Carpet is generally sold by the square yard, and a square yard is 9 square feet (as 3 feet x 3 feet is 9 square feet). The 465 square feet of floor is 51.666... or 52 square yards of carpet. It might be necessary to buy some "extra" area depending on the width of the "stock" roll of carpet from which the desired pattern/color of carpet is going to be cut.

9 square feet = 1 square yard 1,600 square feet = 1777/9 square yards

Square yards x 9 = square feet.

There are 3 feet to a yard, and 9 square feet to a square yard. Multiply yards by 3 to get feet. Multiply square yards by 9 to get square feet.
