Once we get the final area, it can be expressed as square footage using the conversion factors. The following conversion factors are used to convert the respective units to square footage:

- To convert square yards to the square foot, the conversion factor = 9 (1 square yard = 9 square feet)
- To convert square meters to the square foot, the conversion factor = 10.7639 (1 square meter = 10.7639 square feet)
- To convert square inches to the square foot, the conversion factor = 0.00694444 (1 square inch = 0.00694444 square feet)

We use the unitary method to convert a given number to square footage. To do so multiply the given number by the conversion factor.

## Solved Example on Square Footage

**Example 1:** Convert 12,000 square inches into the square foot and verify it using the square footage calculator.

**Solution:**

The conversion factor from square inches to square feet is as follows.

1 square inch = 0.00694444 square foot
