the little thrifty market has a parking lot with dimensions 125 feet by 210 feet. How many square yards is that?

• college math -

area in square feet = 125(210) = 26250 square feet
there are 9 square feet in a square yard, so
number of square yards = 26250/9 = 8750/3 square yds or appr 2916.67 square yds

or:
125 feet = 125/3 yds
210 feet = 70 yds

area = (125/3)(70) = 8750/3 square feet
