Count up the square feet, divide by 9. That is square yards. Then, mulltiply that by 8.91

Ok, So I was thinking it was 12 X 20 making it 240 sq. Ft. So then I have to convert that to sq. Yds correct.? So 240 X .111111111 which gives me 26.67 sq. Yds. So total price is \$237.63. Very nice. I was doing it way wrong. I was just dividing the 240 by 3 thinking it would give me the 80 sq. Yds which was way to much.'

Thanks. It wasn't a homework problem either.
