## How to Convert Inches Square to Kilometers Square

*Example: How many kilometers square are equivalent to 12.94 inches square?*

As;

1 inches square = 6.4516E-10 kilometers square

12.94 inches square = Y kilometers square

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

Y equals 12.94 times 6.4516E-10 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 12.94 * 6.4516E-10 / 1 = 8.3483704E-9 kilometers square

Answer is: 8.3483704E-9 kilometers square are equivalent to 12.94 inches square.
