how do i figure out the proper value for the constant?
i know its something simple.
// the height and width of a wall let height = 120.0 // in inches let width = 144.0 // in inches let area = height * width let areaInFeet = area / 120
You only need one statement to accomplish this. Since area = height x width, the area in feet would have to be the height in inches divided by 12, multiplied by the width in inches divided by 12.
// the height and width of a wall let height = 120.0 // in inches let width = 144.0 // in inches let areaInFeet = (height / 12) * (width / 12)
