    Convert yard into meters
    1 yard = 0.9144meter
    Area of rectangle = length * breadth

    I find it interesting that you use the word "breadth." It's a word I use a lot, but mainly everyone in America uses "width." I wonder what's it like for other countries, (obviously India teaches breadth)
