# How many square feet are in a 12x16 room?

Measure the length and width of the floor in a square or rectangular room, and multiply the figures together to get the floor area in square feet. For example, in a room that is

**10 feet**wide and 18 feet long, the area would be 10 multiplied by 18 to obtain 180 square feet.A.

### What is the formula of square feet?

To calculate the area of a room in square feet,

**measure**the length and width of the room in feet, then multiply these figures together to give an area in ft². For example, a room measuring 12 ft x 15 ft would be described as having an area of 180 ft² (12 x 15 = 180).#### How do you calculate cost per square foot?

This is a relatively simple**calculation**to make. Divide the sale**price**of your home by the**square feet**or your home. Example: Sale**price**= $300,000,**square feet**of home = 3000**sq. ft**. Take 300,000 and divide by 3000 = a**price per square foot**of $100.#### How do you calculate square meters?

**Method 1****Calculating an Area in Square Meters**- Choose a meter stick or metric tape measure.
- Measure the length of the area you're measuring.
- If you can't measure the entire length at once, do it in stages.
- Measure the width.
- Convert from centimeters to meters.
- Multiply the length and width together.

#### What is a square meter?

The**square metre**(International spelling as used by the International Bureau of Weights and Measures) or**square meter**(American spelling) is the SI derived unit of area, with symbol m^{2}(Unicode character: U+33A1 ?**square**m**squared**). It is the area of a**square**whose sides measure exactly one**metre**.

### How many square feet is a 15 by 15 room?

We will use a room that is 10 ft x 15 ft as an example in all of our room scenarios: This is the simple equation: Length (ft) x Width (ft) = Square Footage. Example:

10 ft x 15 ft =

10 ft x 15 ft =

**150**sq.#### How many square feet does a gallon of paint cover?

One gallon can of paint will cover up to**400 square feet**, which is enough to cover a small room like a bathroom. Two gallon cans of paint cover up to**800 square feet**, which is enough to cover an average size room. This is the most common amount needed especially when considering second coat coverage.#### How do you calculate the area?

To find the**area**of a rectangle multiply its height by its width. For a square you only need to find the length of one of the sides (as each side is the same length) and then multiply this by itself to find the**area**.#### How do you figure out the square footage of a house?

Just break out your measuring tape—or a laser measure—to get its length and width. Multiply the width by the length and voila! You have the**square footage**. Say a room is 20**feet**wide by 13**feet**long, then 20 x 13 = 260**square feet**.
