let areaInMeters = area / 10.764

I type in :

import UIKit

let height = 12 // IN FEET! let width = 10 // In Feet

let area = height * width

// 1 sq. meter = 1 sq. foot / 10.764 let areaInMeters = area / 10.764

But I have an error with the line : let areaInMeters = area / 10.764 ERROR: Type 'Int' does not conform to protocol 'FloatLiteralConvertible'

// 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)
