Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\((18\;ft)*(12\;ft) = 216\;ft^{2}\cdot\left(\dfrac{1\;yd}{3\;ft}\right)^{2}\) Alternatively \(\left(18\;ft\cdot\dfrac{1\;yd}{3\;ft}\right)*\left(12\;ft\cdot\dfrac{1\;yd}{3\;ft}\right) = (6\;yd)*(4\;yd)\) The notation can help you if you let it by practicing.
