#### Explanation:

We know that the formula for the area of a rectangle is

length $\cdot$ width

This tells us that if the units are the same for the length and the width, the units for the area will be $u n i t {s}^{2}$

In this case, as all measurements are in feet, the area will be in $f {t}^{2}$.

$\therefore$

area $= \frac{5}{6} \cdot \frac{7}{12} = \frac{35}{72} f {t}^{2}$
