Given the height and width of a wall in inches, calculate the area in feet and assign it to a constant named areaInFeet.

I am having trouble with this challenge can someone please help! this is where I am let areaInFeet = height *width which is wrong? what am I overlooking

// the height and width of a wall
let height = 120.0 // in feet
let width = 144.0 // in feet
let areaInFeet = height / 12

1 Answer

You are the right track is just need to complete the operation by using the formula where Area = height * width

   let height = 120.0 
     let width = 144.0 
     let areaInFeet = (height / 12) * (width/12)

thank you so very much I over looked that you need to group it parenthesis
