How do You Measure Area?

Area is usually measured in square feet or inches, depending on the size of the area being measured. The area of a rectilinear shape is simply measured as length x width. There are other formulas for other shapes, but the resulting answer will be either square feet, inches, yards, or what ever the units are.
