 Question 580504: One square foot of farm land requires four seeds. At this rate, how many seeds will be required to plant ten square yards?Answer by jim_thompson5910(28504)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!1 square yard = 9 square feet So 1/9 of a square yard requires four seeds, which means we have the idea that 1/9 sq yd = 4 seeds Now multiply both sides by 90 to get 90*(1/9) sq yd = 90*4 seeds 90/9 sq yd = 360 seeds 10 sq yd = 360 seeds So 360 seeds are needed to plant 10 square yards.
