The size of houses and buildings are measured in square feet. If you measured the outside length and width of a house and found the length was 60ft. and the width was 30ft., what is the size of the house in square feet?
60x30 and I got 1800ft

except area is in sq. ft.

60ft x 30ft = 1800 ft^2

as you get into more complex problems, remembering the units can be a big help in finding the solution.
