    there are twelve inches along each edge, so how many little squares will you have in the big square?

    Correct. So if there are 144 square inches in each square foot, and you have 60 square feet, how many square inches will you have?

    You can check your answer using unit analyses: \[60ft^2 = 60\times ft \times ft \times \frac{12in}{ft} \times \frac{12in}{ft} = 8640 \times in \times in = 8640 in^2\]
