## 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) l2 or b2
Where,
l = Length 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.)
