# How many yards are in a square mile?

Apr 6, 2016

1 sq mile = 3,097,600 sq yd

#### Explanation:

You cannot convert between units of length (yard) and units of area (square mile). You can only convert:

• units of length:
$1 m i = 1760 y d$

or

• units of area:
$1 m {i}^{2} = 1 m i \cdot 1 m i = 1760 y d \cdot 1760 y d = 3097600 y {d}^{2}$
