The formula for area is:
Area = Length * Width

But first they all need to be the same basic units.

2.5 yard = 7.5 feet
45 inch = 3.75 feet

7.5 feet * 3.75 feet = 28.125 square feet

The main problem though, is your pattern seems to be expecting a specific width and length of leather. If you ask for 28.125 square feet you may get 7 feet by 4 feet or 5.6 feet by 5 feet, or any number of different possibilities. All equal the 28.125 square feet you need, but your pattern may need longer or wider than what you get.

I would try specifically asking for a 90 inch by 45 inch, just to make sure the piece is exactly what your pattern needs.
