You can't. Inches is a unit of length, square feet is a unit of area.

You can convert SQUARE inches to square feet, or vice versa.

1 square foot is 12" by 12"... in other words a square with 12" on 1 side. The area of 1 square foot is 12x12, or 144 square inches.
Use at your own risk as I am not a mathematician,
and as always, check my math!
Hope this helps.
