and inches, and the second the length in feet and inches) and returns
the number of square meters. The prototype function should be declared

Test the function englishToMetricArea by including it in a short programme
which prompts the user for the two width dimensions (feet, inches) and
the length dimensions (feet, inches) and displays the area of the item
in square meters.
