5. Area and Volume Calculations

6. Surface Area Calculations Rectangles Surface Area, ft2 = Length, ft X Width, ft Example 1: If a tank is 10 ft long and5 ft wide, what is the surfacearea? SA, ft2 = 10 ft X 5 ft = 50 ft2

7. Surface Area Calculations Rectangles Surface Area, ft2 = Length, ft X Width, ft Example 2: If a tank is 10 ft 6 inches long and5 ft 9 inches wide, what is the surface area in sq. ft.? NOT SA, ft2 = 10.6 ft X 5.9 ft

8. Converting Inches to Feet 6 inches 12 in/ft = 0.5 ft 6 inches = So: 10 ft 6 inches = 10.5 ft 9 inches 12 in/ft = 0.75 ft 9 inches = So: 5 ft 9 inches = 5.75 ft
