Areas are measured in square units. For many basic geometric shapes, from triangles to squares to rectangles, multiplying the measurement of one dimension by that of another dimension calculates its area. For example, for a rectangle with a length of 6 inches and a width of 3 inches, multiply the length and width together to determine the area, 18 square inches. Square feet and square meters are based on the units of feet and meters, respectively, and 1,600 square feet can be converted to square meters using conversion factors.
