How many square feet are in a room that measures 274.5 inches?

Answer . Actually you measure the length and then the width of the room then you multiply the two .... LxW = Sq ft. . Answer . not enough information in your question, it's like me asking you how tall my friend is if he were 6 inches taller than me. assuming your room is square or rectangle, you need the measurement from two different walls to get the square footage.

Is a square a polygon?

Yes. A polygon is any plane figure bounded by straight lines. So atriangle is a 3-sided polygon, a square is a 4-sided polygon, apentagon a 5-sided polygon....and so on.

What does micro-inch finish mean and how is it measured?

micro means 10 to the -6 inches so for example 32 microinches would be 0.000032 inch. With respect to surface finish it is basically a measure of the height of the "peaks and valleys" of the finish of a surface. There are different ways to measure this (RMS, etc.) but that is basically what it means. So for example a 125 microinch finish is a typical machined fnish for metals but a 32 is much better and would be called out where sealing surfaces may be needed.

What does pounds square inch absolute mean?

Pounds per square in is a unit for measuring pressure (force per unit area).. Absolute pressure is the pressure (eg in a gas) compared to a vacuum, where the pressure is zero.. Often we measure the pressure relative to the atmosphere, which has a pressure of about 14.7 pounds per square inch (psi). This relative pressure is called the gauge pressure. So a (gauge) pressure of 30 psi in a car tyre is really an absolute pressure of 14.7 + 30 = 41.7 psi.. See. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pressure. http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_is_absolute_pressure

What do the legs measure if the hypotenuse of a square is 12.5 inches?

Use the formula: a^2 + b^2 = c^2 'a' and 'b' represent the sides of a right triangle. 'c' represents the hypotenuse. Since this is a square, both sides are the same length. So 'a' and 'b' are equal. You can substitute a^2 for b^2 in the equation. So: a^2 + a^2 = c^2 2a^2 = c^2 2a^2 = 12.5^2 2a^2 = 156.25 a^2 = 156.25 / 2 a^2 = 78.125 a = 8.8388 Answer: 8.8388 inches

Does cubic inches mean squared?

No . THIS IS SQUARED - 2 2 . THIS IS CUBED- 2 3 . Squared means length times width, or X 2 . Cubed means length times width times height, or X 3.

A square measure 8 inches on each side Approximately how long is its diagonal?

To find the diagonal, use the Pythagorean theorem by drawing a diagonal through the square. You then have two sides that should equal the hypotenuse ( or diagonal). The equation should look like 8^2 + 8^2 = h^2. or 64+64= h. 128=h take the square root of 128 and you have your answer. the answer should be around 11.

Why is area measured in squares inches?

When calculating area we multiply length and width ( in the instance of a square ). If we had an area 5 in long and 5 in wide the area is 25 in^2 because we also multiply the unit. If we had a box 5 in long, 5 in wide and 5 in tall we would have a box with a volume of 125 in^3 ( cubic inches). Again we also multiply the units.

What is 3.5 squared mean in inches?

3.5 2 in. would mean 12.2 inches 3.5 in. 2 would mean a square where each side is 3.5 inches long. Any shape with the same area as the square would have 3.5 in. 2.

Can perimeter be measured with foot square foot cubic foot or square inch?

Perimeter is just a distance. It's the distance you have to walk in order to go all the way around the drawing and rerturn to the starting point. Since it's just a distance, it's described with units of distance (length). Inch, foot, meter, mile, smoot, and furlong are all fine. No square unit or cubic unit works for this job.

What is the length of one side of a square the measures 324 inches?

It depends what the 324 inches refers to. It cannot be the area since an area is measured in square inches, not inches. The question is unnecessary if the 324 inches refers to the length of the sides. If 324 inches is the perimeter, then the length of one side is 324/4 = 81 inches.

How do you get diagonal measurement of a 17x17 inch square?

You use the Pythagorean Theorem, which says that the square of the hypotenuse of a right triangle is the sum of the squares of the other two sides. Two adjacent sides of a square (or any rectangle) together with a diagonal form a right triangle. In the case of a square, the triangle is isosceles. Calling the length of a side of the square (17 inches) one unit, the theorem tells us that the hypotenuse is the square root of 2 units. Therefore the diagonal of the square is 17 times the square root of 2 inches, which is about 24 inches.

How do you find the outside dimension of a polygon expressed in linear inches from the area of the polygon expressed in square inches?

You cannot. There is no simple relationship between the area of a polygon and its dimensions. For example a rectangle with an area of 1 sq inch can have any length, L, of 1 or more inches, and a breadth of 1/L inches. There are infinitely many possible values for L and so infinitely many solutions. A question that is in the more general form which simply gives the area of a quadrilateral, rather that a rectangle, there are even more options.

What can you measure in square inches?

As square inches are a measure of area, you can measure any areayou like in square inches. However, depending upon the size of the area: square feet may be more appropriate for the size of a room square yards may be more appropriate for a small piece of land acres may be more appropriate for a larger piece of land square miles may be more appropriate for a very large piece ofland.
