## How to Convert Feet Square to Centimeters Square

*Example: How many centimeters square are equivalent to 17.88 feet square?*

As;

1 feet square = 929.0304 centimeters square

17.88 feet square = Y centimeters square

Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;

Y equals 17.88 times 929.0304 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 17.88 * 929.0304 / 1 = 16611.063552 centimeters square

Answer is: 16611.063552 centimeters square are equivalent to 17.88 feet square.
