1. During the taking of a goal kick, the ball may be placed anywhere in this area.
2. During the taking of any free kick (direct or indirect), the ball is moved away from the goal line along a line perpendicular to the goal line to the top of this area; exactly 6 yards out. This is to prevent, for example, an indirect free kick 6 inches from the goal line. It would also give some running room for a defensive free kick going out.
It is the smallest box on each end of the field next to the goal. In addition, it is sometimes called the "six yard box" because from the goal line to the top of the goal box, the measurement is 6 yards.

The Goal Area (so-called "six-yard box") extends from the Goal Line 6 yards (18 feet), and is 20 yards (60 feet) wide.

The so-called "18-yard box" is properly called the Penalty Area. It is 44 yards wide (left and right) and 18 yards deep (from the goal line toward midfield, and the origin of the nickname). The Penalty Area contains the Goal Area (the "six-yard box") and the Penalty Mark (12 yards from the center of the goal, or halfway between the edges of the goal area and penalty area lines). Attached to the Penalty Area is an arc (the "Penalty Arc") that forms that part of a 10-yard circle from the Penalty Mark which lies outside of the Penalty Area. This arc is not part of the Penalty Area; it just indicates where players cannot be during a penalty kick.
there are 36 or (thirty-six) inches in a yard .
