a is the length
b the width
P the perimeter of the rectangle
```

##### Conversions
```one square foot ( ft²) = 144 square inches (in²)
one square inch (in²) = 0.00694444444444443 square feet (ft²)
one square foot ( ft²) = 0.09290304 square metres (m²)
square inch (in²) = 0.00064516 square metres (m²)
