# Homework Help: measurements

Posted by George on Thursday, October 1, 2009 at 6:53pm.

Why do we measure perimeter in ft, area in ft^2 (or feet squared), and volume in ft^3 (or feet cubed)? What does each mean within the strand of measurement?

distance is in linear terms (foot), area is in linear terms squared, and volume is in linear cubed. They mean what they indicate.
