### Calculate shapes in inches into square feet?

Okay let's say you have a rectangle. The length is 36 inches and
the width is 12 inches.
You know to find the area in square inches, just multiply length
times width.
So 36 inches X 12 inches = 432 square inches.
In order to turn that into square feet, just take the square
inches and divide by 12 because there are 12 inches in a foot.
So 432 square inches divided by 12 equals 36 square feet. Not so
there are 144 square inches in a square foot, divide by 144
