    for example if you need to find the area of a rectangle in sq inches and you are given the length as 2 feet and the width is 1 foot you convert the 2 feet and 1 foot to inches.

    Should I just put in "You have to convert the side lengths to the same unit of measure,"

    You have to convert both the side lengths to the same units as the area ( well the square root of the area units)

    if the area is square inches - you convert the sides to inches if the area is sq metres - you convert the sides to metres
