    |dw:1435277478056:dw| For every 1 inch, reality is 30 inches So multiply length by 30 then multiply width by 30 then multiply both because area equals length times width 1 sq inch = 30 sq inches 2 sq inches = 2*30 sq inches ... 4 sq inches = 4*30 sq inches, etc You then convert to square inches to feet: 12 inches = 1 ft So, 12^2=144 sq inches = 1^1=1 sq ft Now divide your final answer (area in sq inches) by 144 to convert from sq inches to sq feet Area = (length*30 times width*30)/144
