You know that there are 12 inches in 1 foot.  Make a square 1 foot
on a side.  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?
