No problems, Since 12 inches = 1 foot = 30 cm

12 square inches is a square area that is 30 cm by 30 cm.

I hope this helps.

Woah !!!!

Please disregard my last post. This morning when I woke up, I realized my mistake.... What the heck was I thinking?

What I explained was a 12" x 12" area which is 1 square foot (144 square inches).

12 square inches would be a square that is only 3 inches by 4 inches.

That is 7.5 cm by 10cm.

Sorry about that.
