how do i change 30.50 in^2 to mm^2

my conversion sheet says its
1 inch =25.4mm

  • math -

    So i did the following:

    30.50in^2 * 25.4mm =774.7mm

    but i don't know if i should square it or not?.. im confused please help

  • math -

    1 inch =25.4mm. That is right.

    But when squaring, you have to square both the units _and_ the numbers, so

    1 inch = 25.4 mm

    (1 inch)^ = (25.4mm)^2

    (1^2) inch^2 = (25.4^2) mm^2

    1 in^2 = 645.16 mm^2

    Or think of it this way:

    Draw a 3-inch line. That's 3 inches.

    Now make a square from it with 3 inches on each side. How many square inches is that?
