Square footage is a measurement of the area of a room. In a simple square or rectangularshaped room, use the formula "length times width" to calculate square footage.
Measure the length and width of the room or space. Write down each number in feet and inches.
Multiple the length and width. If the measurements are seven feet and nine feet, the result of 7 x 9 is 63.
Record the number as square footage, such as 63 square feet. An abbreviated version of this measurement is 63 Sq. Ft.
Number of square feet divided by 43,560 = acres.
