**Square meters** and **square yards** are both ways to measure area, which is how much space a flat surface occupies.

- A
**square meter**is a square that measures**1 meter**on each side. - A
**square yard**, on the other hand, is a square that measures**1 yard**(or about**0.91 meters**) on each side.

### Converting 15 Square Meters to Square Yards

To convert **square meters** to **square yards**, we use this simple equation:

$$

1 \text{ square meter} \approx 1.196 \text{ square yards}

$$

So, to find out how many square yards are in **15 square meters**, we multiply:

$$

15 \text{ square meters} \times 1.196 \text{ square yards/square meter} \approx 17.94 \text{ square yards}

$$

This means your **15 square meter** garden is about **17.94 square yards** in size!

### Objects that are 15 Square Meters

Here are **7 objects** that are **exactly equal** to **15 square meters**:
