Forum rules
Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

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.
