Hey there! Today, let’s talk about **square meters** and **square yards**, which are both ways to measure area. If you like to garden, knowing how much space you have for plants is really important!

**Square meters** are often used in most places around the world, but in some places like the United States, **square yards** are more common. So, how do we change from square meters to square yards?

To do this, we can use a simple conversion. There are about **1.19599 square yards in every square meter**. This means if you have a space that is 85 square meters, you have to multiply by this number to find out how many square yards that is.

Let’s do the math together:

$$

85 \text{ square meters} \times 1.19599 \text{ square yards/square meter} \approx 101.16915 \text{ square yards}

$$

So, **85 square meters** is about **101.17 square yards**.

Now, here are **7 objects or areas** that are **exactly equal** to **85 square meters**:

1. A small **garden** that is 24.5 meters long and 3.5 meters wide.

2. A medium-sized **room** that is 9.2 meters long and 9.2 meters wide.

3. A space for **planting flowers** that is 17 meters long and 5 meters wide.

4. An area for a **vegetable patch** that is 10 meters long and 8.5 meters wide.

5. A **woodshed** that is 10 meters long and 8.5 meters wide.

6. A **playground** area that is 12.5 meters long and 6.8 meters wide.

7. A **deck** that is 8.5 meters long and 10 meters wide.

Now you know how to convert square meters to square yards and have some fun examples to think about! Happy gardening! ðŸŒ±
