## How to Convert Centimeters Square to Feet Square

*Example: How many feet square are equivalent to 85.5 centimeters square?*

As;

1 centimeters square = 0.001076 feet square

85.5 centimeters square = Y feet square

Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;

Y equals 85.5 times 0.001076 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 85.5 * 0.001076 / 1 = 0.091998 feet square

Answer is: 0.091998 feet square are equivalent to 85.5 centimeters square.
