How many meters of fencing would I need to enclose a yard that is 20 yards by 15 yards?
8. Gulshan Jan 15, 2016 at 12:25 pm
Hi Ray,

To enclose a yard that is 20 yards by 15 yards, you would first need to calculate the perimeter of the yard in yards. The perimeter is the sum of all sides of a rectangle, so (20 yards * 2) + (15 yards * 2) = 40 yards + 30 yards = 70 yards. Next, convert the perimeter from yards to meters using the conversion factor 0.9144 (1 yard equals 0.9144 meters). Thus, 70 yards * 0.9144 = 63.008 meters. Therefore, you would need approximately 63.008 meters of fencing to enclose the yard.
