Because friction depends only on cofficient of friction and roughness of the surfaces and it is independent of the area b/w the surfaces.

Friction is a microscopic constant and so macroscopic level area does not matter.

But area would matter if the object we''re putting under study was microscopic, which isn''t in our case.
