Smile Re: How to convert Meter Squared in linear meters?

Its simple but you need the width of the material you are going to be working with.

LINEAR METRES OF MATERIAL REQUIRED(LM) = AREA OF JOB(A) / WIDTH OF MATERIAL REQUIRED(W)

For example:
I have a room 6 x 5 metres so the Area = 30 m2
I want to lay timber floorboard planks and their WIDTH per floorboard plank is 0.25 metres.
LM=A/W = 30/0.25 = 120
Therefore I will need 120 linear metres of the 0.25mtr wide planks.

A wallpaper roll has 10.05*0.51=5.1255 meter .
350/5.1255=68.2 .You need 69 wallpaper rolls.

I assume those widths are in millimeters. Express in meters and divide area by width
130 m/0.13 m = 1000 m
130 m/0.09 m = 1445 m
130 m/0.08 m = 1625 m

This makes no allowance for scrap from cutting pieces to fit and having the remainder too small to use. Allow around 10% extra on all amounts.
