## How to Convert Kilometers Square to Inches Square

*Example: How many inches square are equivalent to 71.28 kilometers square?*

As;

1 kilometers square = 1550003099.9938 inches square

71.28 kilometers square = Y inches square

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

Y equals 71.28 times 1550003099.9938 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 71.28 * 1550003099.9938 / 1 = 110484220967.56 inches square

Answer is: 110484220967.56 inches square are equivalent to 71.28 kilometers square.
