Think through the question. You know how many inches are in one foot. You know the concept of a square - so one square foot has 12 inches on each side. Now you know how many square inches in a square foot, and in the case of your desk, there are 2 and one half of them. Sum them and what is your answer?

How many germs are in the common classroom?

Some research has shown approximately 21,000 germs per square inch can live on a desktop, so if the typical classroom desktop is 144 square inches, that would be approximately 3,024,000 germs on each desktop. Usually, the teacher's desk is at least twice that size, so the teacher's desk could hold 48,384,000 germs. Each keyboard can hold about as many germs as a desktop. As you can see, the typical classroom could easily harbor well over 100 million germs.

How do you convert inches to sq inches?

It's not a matter of converting. It's a matter of deciding what you are going to measure. Inches measure length. An ordinary desk ruler is 12 inches in length. A yardstick, three feet, is 36 inches long. Square inches measure an area, not a length. The area of an ordinary standard (8.5 inches by 11 inches) piece of printer paper is calculated by multiplying the two dimensions together: 11 X 8.5 = 93.5 square inches.
