Well you have to set up a fraction ratio

For example I want to convert 88 inches squared to mm not squared but just a length dimension

88 inches x 1 mm/ 0.0393 inches = 2,239.185750636132 so inches ^2 divided by inches will leave you with inches and millimetres which is incorrect the correct way using unit analysis is

square root of 88 is 9.38083151964686 now divide this by 1 mm/0.0393 inches and your only left with mm not inches and mm. Your end result in an equation will look as follows

9.38083151964686 inches X 1 mm/0.0393 = and I'll let you do that math 😃.

Just to answer possible questions you may ask where did 0.0393 come from well that is the amount of inches in a mm you may also ask why mm on top that is for unit analysis to cancel out the inch measurements leaving us with our desired mm

To recap we went from inches^2 square rooted it to make it inches so they cancel in our equation( Inch/inch ) and were left with mm Wiki User

There can be no conversion. A millimetre is a measure of length in 1-dimensional space while a square metre is a measure of area in 2-dimensional space. The two measure different characteristics and, according to the most basic principles of dimensional analysis, any attempt at comparisons or conversions between the two are fundamentally flawed.

Millimeters are a measure of length, but meters squared are a measure of area, so you can't convert one to the other.   Wiki User

There are a 1,000 millimeters in one meter, so there are a 1,000,000 millimeters squared in a meter squared. To convert from millimeters squared to meters squared, simply divide by 1,000,000.   Wiki User

As 1 km2 = 1,000,000,000,000 mm2 , to convert from km2 to mm2, multiply the km2 by 1012.   Wiki User

A square inch is a unit of area. A millimetre is a unit of distance. The two units are therefore incompatible.   Earn +20 pts
