Divide each side into twelve parts, each one inch long. Connect them up with lines parallel to the sides. You end up with something that looks a little like a checkerboard. How many squares of side 1 inch are there? That is the number of square inches in a square foot. Now how many square inches would there be in ten of these square feet? -Doctor Rob, The Math Forum Check out our web site! http://mathforum.org/dr.math/
