**LEARN HOW TO CONVERT**

A lot of people still work in square yards. therefore it makes sense to
know how to convert the dimensions of your room into square yards.

Grab yourself a calculator and we will begin.

Before we start, you need to know some of the
terminology used in this section

A lot of people still work in square
yards. therefore it makes sense to know how to convert the
dimensions of your room into square yards.

Grab yourself a calculator and we will
begin.

First measure your room to be carpeted
in feet and inches. For example your room measures 14'3" x
12'6"" (allowed size).

The carpet you want to order comes 4
meters wide. 4meters=13'1"

ok so you want to order 14'3" x
13`1"

To convert your size you must remember
that a calculator works in base 10, and imperial sizes (feet and inches)
work in base 12. So 3" = 0.25 on a calculator,
6"=0.5 9"=0.75 1' equals
1.00 1'3"=1.25 and so on.

so 14'3"=14.25 and 4
meters(13'1")=13.12

now that you have your sizes in base
10. All you do is multiply one by the other then divide by
9. This will give you the exact sqyd size.

14.25 x 13.12 divide by 9 = 20.77sqyd

Another handy calculation for
converting metric sizes into feet is:

metric x 1.0936 x 3 = imperial

i.e. 4(4m) x 1.0936 x 3 = 13.12
(13'1")
