1. The square root of 36 is 6.

The square root of 4 is 2.

There are 2 yards in 6 feet -- so you're right -- 36 square feet = 4 square yards.

2. One square foot = 12 inches x 12 inches, which is 144 inches.

Then, 36 square feet x 144 inches = 5184 inches.

=============================

One square yard = 3 feet x 3 feet

One foot = 12 inches.

12 inches x 3 feet = 36 inches.

Then 36 inches x 36 inches = 1296 inches.

1296 inches x 4 = 5184 inches

Yes, they both = 5184 inches

So, the answer to your question is yes.

36 square feet = 4 square yards.

Done!
