### foot, inches calculator

Hi Guys, I'm trying to make simple math calculator with feet & inches
for example:
enter 4-2 and 1-8
and it will calculate
4 feet * 12 inches = 48 inches +2 inches = 50 inches
1 feet * 8 inches = 12 inches + 8 inches = 20 inches
and then multiply together = 1,000 square inches

and then calculate square feet & inches
1000 square inches / 144 inches = 6.94 sq.ft.
0.94 * 12 = 11.28
therefore Answer = 6-11 (6 feet 11 inches)
thanks in advance! what am i doing wrong?

i try to make it with function too and no cigar..

@204squares, I don't think you accounted for the fact that you have to square the inches also, and I don't think it's very common to see "12 sq.ft. 108 sq.in.", so I haven't done that.
You might look at this code to see if it will help.
Edit: Removed * 2 from answer := 1total * 2total so calculations would be correct. There still isn't any check for not entering the hyphen and an inch value.
