How do you calculate square feet?

Answer

Square footage is a measurement of the area of a room. In a simple square or rectangular-shaped room, use the formula "length times width" to calculate square footage.

  1. Measure length and width

    Measure the length and width of the room or space. Write down each number in feet and inches.

  2. Multiply length times width

    Multiple the length and width. If the measurements are seven feet and nine feet, the result of 7 x 9 is 63.

  3. Indicate the square footage

    Record the number as square footage, such as 63 square feet. An abbreviated version of this measurement is 63 Sq. Ft.
