# Square Footage Formula

To know the measurement of a building for a construction project, for a room, or tiles, or a carpet; basically anything that is square, we measure them in the unit: Square footage. Commonly, the area specifically for a room and building is square footage.

The formula is given as:

\[\large Square\;Footage=Length\times Breadth\]

To find out the Square Footage Formula for a triangular area,

\[\large Square\;Footage=\frac{Breadth\times Length}{2}\]

**Solved Example**

**Question:** A builder wants to draw a blueprint of the kitchen so that it doesn’t occupies the area more than 120 Sq feet. Then, what is the length of the kitchen if the breadth is 10 ft.

**Solution**

According to the formula we have:

$Square\;Footage=Length\times Breadth$

Given,

Sq Footage = 120 Sq feet

Breadth = 10 ft

$120=Length\times 10$

$Length=\frac{120}{10}$

$Length= 12 Sq Feet$
