How Many Feet Are in a Square Foot?

A square foot equals the area of a square with each side equal to one foot. It is not possible to calculate feet in a square foot because these are two different types of measurements; a square foot denotes a unit of area, and feet is a unit of length.

Although a square foot and feet are units of measures that are not equitable, it is possible to relate a square foot to square inches or to a square meter. One square foot equals 144 square inches. Converting one square foot to a square meter, the conversion is that 1 square foot = 0.092903 square meter.
