 Question from Terry, a student: MY cost for seed is $325.00 per acre...i want to bring that down to$ per sqyard. What's the formula?

Terry,

I went to Google and typed in 1 acre in square yards and got the response 1 acre = 4 840 square yards. Hence divide the cost per acre by 4 840 to find the price in square yards.
