Example: if you have 186 BF (board feet) of 3/4" x 2" wood flooring, you compute: 186 / 1.38 = 134.8 ft˛

# of Runs

1" 1 1/4" 1 1/2" 1 3/4" 2" 2 1/4" 2 1/2" 2 3/4" 3" 3 1/4" 3 1/2" 3 3/4" 4" 4 1/4" 4 1/2" 4 3/4" 5"

(# of runs X bundle length in feet X width in inches) / 12 Example: if you have 16 runs of 2-1/4" flooring in a bundle that is 8 feet long, you would compute: (16 x 8 x 2.25) / 12 = 24

Convert Lineal to Square Footage: Lineal Feet: Board Width: 1" 1 1/4" 1 1/2" 1 3/4" 2" 2 1/4" 2 1/2" 2 3/4" 3" 3 1/4" 3 1/2" 3 3/4" 4" 4 1/4" 4 1/2" 4 3/4" 5" Square Feet:

(Lineal feet x Width in inches) / 12 = Square Ft.

Example: If you have 40 lineal feet of a 2 inch wide feature strip, you would compute: (40 x 2) / 12 = 6.66 ft˛

Convert Square to Lineal Footage: Square Feet: Board Width: 1" 1 1/4" 1 1/2" 1 3/4" 2" 2 1/4" 2 1/2" 2 3/4" 3" 3 1/4" 3 1/2" 3 3/4" 4" 4 1/4" 4 1/2" 4 3/4" 5" Lineal Feet:

(square feet x 12) / width in inches = lineal footage

Example: If you have 8 square feet of a 1-1/2 inch feature strip, to get lineal feet you would compute: (8ft˛x 12) / 1.5 inches = 64 lineal ft
