linear meters to square meters

Hi, I'm hoping that you can explain this to me in very simple terms so I can remember how to do it again...lol...
I have a timber floorboard that is 85mm wide of undetermined length. I have been advised that the timber will cost \$12 a linear meter. I need to work out the square meter price of this timber. How do I do this? Is it possible? Ahhh help?

Re: linear meters to square meters

linear meters * width in meters = square meters

85 millimeters = 0.085 meters
1 linear meters * 0.085 meters = 0.085 square meters

\$12 / 0.085 square meters = \$141.18 per square meter

Thats some expensive wood.

Thanks Robert, I was doing it right. I was just extremely surprised at the price and thought I must've done something wrong. Thanks for the simple explanation. You're a star!

Re: square meter to linear meter

We have got a tile of 60x60cm. We need to cut the tiles to 20x60cm. How many linear meters do we get.

Assuming you don't break any (I broke a lot, the one time I did any tiling), you will get three pieces 20 x 60 cm from each tile.

Measuring areas in linear meters assumes a width. You get different answers depending on whether you use the 20 cm or 60 cm dimension as width, and line them up with the other dimension as length. You have 0.6 m of 60 cm wide tile or 1.8 m of 20 cm wide tile. You decide.

Is the 150 mm dimension the thickness, and the two larger dimensions the face area of interest?

Each A sized piece has a face area of 0.406 m x 1.22 m =0.4953 m².
Taking the reciprocal, 2.019 pieces will cover a square meter.

Each B sized piece has an area of 0.743 m², 1.346 pcs will cover 1 m².

Tiles are usually installed with grout between tiles, and the dimensions should be the tile plus the grout width. This will slightly reduce the number of tiles needed in an area. However, cutting to size to fit at the edges of the room will waste some tile. Both factors need to be considered for an exact tile count for a job, but the above will give you a general idea.

I don't understand what you mean by the three dimensions. Usually a tile has a length and a width, and the thickness is relatively thin. Please describe the dimensions relative to the way the tile will be used.

Which way is the tile oriented? Is it 54 m x 300 mm or 54 m x 150 mm

If 300 mm that's 0.3 m, and area is 54 m x 0.3 m = 16.2 m².

i need 54m of tiles which has to be cut to 150mm x 300mm for skirting tiles. the suppiler only has 250mm x 400mm and has asked me to cut them to 150mm x 300mm. so i am trying to work out the area required to order 250mm x 400mm tiles, which i can cut to 150mm x 300mm. i require 54m to do the skirting.

i want to minimise has much waste as possiable

If I assume the tiles are 150 mm wide (perpendicular to the direction of skirting) and 300 mm long (in the direction of skirting) you need 54 m/ 0.3 m = 180 tiles

Each 250 mm x 400 mm tile can only yield one 150 mm x 300 mm tile and some scrap, so you need 180 of the larger tiles (that assumes no cutting mistakes or breakage) The area is 180 x 0.4 m x 0.25 m = 18 m², of which you are only using 180 x 0.3 x 0.15 = 8.1 m², so get a good discount. In cutting, you are throwing over half the area away.

So if 10 tiles is 6 linear meters, I assume they are 0.6 m x 0.072 m, and the area of 10 of them is 10 x 0.6 m x 0.072 m = 0.432 m².

Re: linear meters to square meters

To calculate a linear mt to sqm
here is the formula
wx = 1000
w = width of the timber
x = is the amount of linear meter to make up a sqm
so if your width is 85mm
85X = 1000
so X = 11.76 (that mean 11.76 of linear meter with 85mm will make a sqm)
so if the linear meter is \$12 dollar
you time the \$12 dollar with 11.75 to get the total amount for a sqm

\$12 X 11.76 = \$141.12
Hope you'll unterstand Malo

It is the length of material required given some standard width (and thickness) which are ignored. If you buy precast curbs, it is the length of all the materials you buy. For a street of length L, and curbs on both sides, you need 2*L linear meters, and the cross section has to be the shape you want. Actually, you might have some deductions for driveways.

For boards to cover a deck of area A, with boards of width W, you need A/W linear meters plus a scrap allowance. If you don't know the width, or the boards have mixed widths, this becomes a very confusing concept, and you can't tell what the coverage will be.

MYR 280/sheet x 1 sheet/(2.44 m x 1.228 m) = MYR 93.448/ m²

Don't know, depends on the width of the material.

Measure the visible width, as it will be installed, and express it in meters.
Divide the area by that.

Example 100 mm, as installed is 0.1 m
56 m²/0.1 m = 560 m
(You should add 10% scrap factor as cutting to fit will result in scraps too short to use)

If material is wider, you need less length.

An area is the product of two dimensions, for example a length and a width. If those values are lengths, what is the width? Can you tell us more about the context of your question? There is no general conversion without addition information.
