They have the same area.

These dimensions are the same as 10' x 4', so the answer is 40 sq ft.

Area of the rectangle is 144cm. The sides of a square with the same ares is 12cm.

Yes

The area and perimeter might be written with the same number,but they can't be 'the same' because they have different units.If the length of the side of the square is 4 feet, thenits perimeter is 16 feet and its area is 16 square feet.These are not 'the same'.

If it is a perfect rectangle and you are measuring the sides by feet then the length times the width of a rectangle is the same as the square footage.

Unless you have a flat roof, no; the surface area of the roof will be larger than the ground area of the building.

-- Measure the length of the room, front wall to back wall. -- Measure the width of the room, side wall to side wall. -- Multiply the two numbers. Their product is the area of the floor in square feet. The area of the floor is what they're talking about when they refer to the room's "square footage". It's the amount of carpet that it would take to do the room. The ceiling has the same area.

They have the same area.

When you say "square footage", that usually means the area of the floor, and yes, you get that by multiplying (length of the room) x (width of the room). That tells you how much carpet you need for the floor. The walls and the ceiling also have their own "square footage". You have to know that to do things like paint and wallpaper. The ceiling has the same area as the floor. But for the walls, you have to do another whole different calculation. The easy formula for square footage of the walls is circumference (the distance around the room at the floor level) X the height of the wall (at the tallest point if the walls are uneven or have a peak). If the walls have a large number of windows, doors or other areas not to be painted, you may want to figure the rough square footage of these (estimate low, better to have a bit too much paint than a bit too little) and subtract that from your total. If you are estimating square footage for paint remember you may want to do two coats. If you are estimating for wallpaper, be sure to allow for the "pattern repeat".

The square footage will depend on the length and width, and the number of floors. The height is less important. A height of 37 feet could be one very high floor, two pretty high ones, or three moderate ones. So, if each floor has the same area, that would result in one, two or three times the area of each floor.

The area of the floor is 48 square feet, and the area of the ceiling is the same. In order to calculate the area of the walls, we have to know the height of the ceiling above the floor.

The total surface of the base is 2206 square feet (approx). The area of the top, if there is any, will be the same. The area of the side walls is 1582 square feet (approx).

Can't be done. You need to specify the width and length of the pool. That is because the area of a long, narrow pool is not the same as the area of a pool that is closer to square.

If the floor is 22-ft x 12-ft, then -- the area of the floor is (22 x 12) = 264 square feet -- the area of the ceiling is the same as the area of the floor -- in order to calculate the area of the walls, we also need to know their height

Unless the room is a perfect square (length and width are the exact same) you cannot determine the length and width without knowing one of the two first. If you know one of these, simply divide the square footage by the measurement that you do know. If the room is a perfect square, the length and width would both be the square root of the square footage.

measure the floor peramiter if it is the same shape as the cieling. Measure it is square sections and figure square footage from there by multiplying base x height of each square you've measured. If you have a cathedral cieling it may be easiest to just measure on a ladder.
