    A somewhat confusing question.

    since it is sold at $8.50 per yard, to obtain square yards, the material, or whatever it is, has to be 1 yard wide as well.

    So really all we want to know what 80 yards is in metres.
    1.1 yards = 1 m
    1 yd = 1/1.2 m
    80 yds = 80(1/1.1) = 72.72 metres
