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.
