How to Calculate Square Feet of a Square Room, House, Box?

## Calculate Square Footage of a Square Room/House

**Square Feet** or **(Square Foot - plural)** is a unit used for measuring the area and which can be expressed as sq ft. Here is a simple tutorial with an example to calculate the square footage of a square. The calculation to find the sq ft here can be used to measure the square feet of a square box, room, house, window etc.,

**Formula:**

The Square Footage of an area either square or rectangle can be
calculated by multiplying the length and breadth of the area. For a
square, all sides are equal and hence multiplying the length of a side
twice gives the square foot of the square.

**Square Feet of Square = l x b (or) l**^{2} or b^{2}

**Where,**

l = Length

b = Breadth

**Step 1: Consider the below example:**

For a square with dimension of 4 foot on a side, we are required to calculate the Square Foot of the square. Since all sides in a square are equal, both the length (l) and breadth (b) will be the same.

**Step 2:****Applying the values in the formula:**

Square Feet of Square = 4 x 4

= 16 Sq. Ft.

Hence it is calculated that for a given **square of 4 foot** on a side, there are **16 squares of 1 foot each (16 Sq. Ft.)**
