:( ???

I am laminating my kitchen but in order to find out how many packs of flooring I would need, I need to find out the size of the area.

Now the problem is I have no idea what a square inch is and how to measure a square inch, I know this sounds silly but my brain refuses to register what it is even though people have tried explaining it to me.

So my question is how do I measure a square inch?

To give you an idea, (whether it helps or not) my kitchen is in the shape of a [b]T [/b]- Now long part of the[b] T is 145" straight inches and 64" in width[/b].

The top part of the [b]T 156"[/b] in length and [b]36" in width[/b]

Now I dont know if any of the above makes any sense to [b]anyone[/b]

Any help on this one would be greatly appreciated

Thanks ;D

Multiply 146 by 64 Multiply 156 by 36 Add the two answers. This will give you the total area in square inches.

Ok thanks for that, I did try that but the answer seemed way too much.

However I will take your word for it

Thanks again

That is correct.

Area = Length * Width

The easiest way to think of square inches, is: inches * inches = inches[sup]2[/sup]
