## How to Convert Millimeters Square to Feet Square

*Example: How many feet square are equivalent to 36.3 millimeters square?*

As;

1 millimeters square = 1.1E-5 feet square

36.3 millimeters square = Y feet square

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

Y equals 36.3 times 1.1E-5 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 36.3 * 1.1E-5 / 1 = 0.0003993 feet square

Answer is: 0.0003993 feet square are equivalent to 36.3 millimeters square.
