This tool will convert your linear footage measurements into square footage quickly and easily.

## How to Use the Linear Feet to Square Feet Calculator

To use this calculator, simply follow these steps:

- Enter the length in linear feet in the “Length in Linear Feet” input box.
- Enter the width in feet in the “Width in Feet” input box.
- Click on the “Calculate” button to get the result.
- The result will be displayed in the “Result” box in square feet.

## How It Works

This calculator takes the length in linear feet and the width in feet as inputs. By multiplying these two values, it calculates the area in square feet.

For example, if you enter a length of 10 linear feet and a width of 5 feet, the calculation would be:

`10 linear ft * 5 ft = 50 sq ft`

.

## Limitations

This calculator assumes that the shape to be measured is rectangular, a common scenario where length and width can be multiplied to get the area in square feet. For other shapes, the formula for calculating square footage will change and this calculator will not provide the correct result.
