The equation is:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[3.12 (nautical miles)^2] (1.852x10^3 m/1 nautical mile)^2 = 1.07x10^7 m^2

I don't understand how that answer was reached. The nautical miles cancel out so I assumed I would just multiply 3.12 X 1.852x10^3 to get the same anwer as provided and my answer is nothing close to that. What do I have to do to get the above answer?
