How do you get square feet from inches? Ex: a room measures 179 inches by 5o inches, what is the square feet?

There are 2 ways to do this. You could first figure out how many square inches the room is by multiplying the 179 x 50. Then, since this is square inches and you want square feet, you would divide this answer by 144, because there are 144 square inches in one square foot.

Or, you could first change each inch measurement into feet, and them multiply the 2 togeter, giving you square feet.
