Foundation Squaring Calculator
This calculator is capable of use in the American system of feet and inches, and the metric system of meters. Select the American or Metric number system first. In the feet and inches mode (American system), enter your value of feet indicated as Feet, then the inches, if there are any, in the box indicated as Inches. If you have a fraction of an inch, you may enter it. Keep in mind that this is a decimal fraction; for example .5 is 1/2 inch and .75 is 3/4 inch. If you are uncertain as to the conversion, you may use our conversion tables for precision up to 64ths of an inch in decimal. (If you already know the conversion of inches to a decimal, you may just enter it as feet. For example, you could enter 5 feet 6 inches as 5 in the feet box and 6 in the inches box, or just 5.5 in the feet box and no entry in the inches box.) In the metric mode, only the first box on length and width is used; the system and calculator accept decimals. The answer is returned in feet, inches and construction fractions (to 64ths) in the American mode while the Metric mode returns meters and decimal values. If you do more than one calculation, be sure to click on the Clear Values button between attempts.
