Answer

$7$ square feet

Work Step by Step

Step 1: $12$ inches equal 1 foot Step 2: Therefore, $1$ square foot is equal to $12^{2}=144$ square inches Step 3: If $144$ square inches equal 1 square foot, then $1008$ square inches equal $x$ square feet Step 4: Using ratios, $\frac{144}{1}=\frac{1008}{x}$ Step 5: Therefore, $x =\frac{1008}{144}=7$ Step 6: $1008$ square inches therefore represent $7$ square feet
