80 yards are 240 feet. Forget the word "linear". All length measures are linear.

You cannot. Linear feet are a measure of distance, square feet are a measure of area. The two measure different things and it makes no sense to try to convert from one to the other.

That is impossible, because linear miles are a 'length' and square feet cover an 'area'.

You don't.

you don't. that's like asking how many dollars are in 10 feet. the units "linear feet" and "square feet" represent two totally different types of quantities. if you have a rectangle made up of 216 linear feet, the area (in square feet) could be practically anything. If the sides are 50 and 58, the perimeter is 216 linear feet and the area is 2,900 square feet. But if the sides are 10 and 98 feet, the perimeter is still 216 linear feet, while the area is now 980 square feet.
