To calculate area we need 2 dimensions: length and width.

To calculate volume we need 3 dimensions: length, width (or depth) and height.

We use square feet to represent the area of a flat surface. However we use cubic feet to give the volume of a structure like a box.

The question is misleading because it has 4 dimensions.

8 x 2 = 16 sq ft

1 ft = 12 in 1 sq ft = 1 ft × 1 ft = 12 in × 12 in = 144 sq in surface area cuboid = 2 × (length × width + width × depth + depth × length) = 2 × (4 ft × 0.5 ft + 0.5 ft × 2 ft + 2 ft × 4 ft) = 22 sq ft = 22 × 144 sq in = 3,168 sq in

2 sq ft = 2*144 = 288 sq inches.2 sq ft = 2*144 = 288 sq inches.2 sq ft = 2*144 = 288 sq inches.2 sq ft = 2*144 = 288 sq inches.

2 acre = 87,120 sq feet

30 sq metres = 322.92 sq ft (to 2 dp)

Surface area = 2 x (length x width + width x depth + depth x length) = 2 x (2 ft x 4 ft + 4 ft x 6 ft + 6 ft x 2 ft) = 2 x (8 sq ft + 24 sq ft + 12 sq ft) = 2 x 44 sq ft = 88 sq ft

Convert both units to feet and multiply: 12 in = 1 ft → 2 ft × 8 in = 2 ft × 8 ÷ 12 ft = 4/3 sq ft = 1⅓ sq ft ≈ 1.33 sq ft

1 square foot (ft^2) = 0.0929 square meters (m^2)

Measure from front to back of house,then you multiply it bye 2 (both sides of the house).this gives you the sq footage of the house. Look at box and see how much is sq ft. Is in the box . Add the amount of boxes to the sq ft you got from the house.

1 sq yard = 9 sq ft. 12 ft x 20 ft = 240 sq ft. 240 sq ft = 26 2/3 sq yards.

25,920 sq. in. 180 sq. ft. 20 sq. yds.
