First of all, it is important to remember that linear feet and square feet are completely different units of measurement. But letâ€™s go back to basics, linear footage is a term that is used to describe a single foot length of any long and narrow object for example if you are covering your hallway with laminate wood. This unit of measurement is most commonly used for measuring the length of planks of wood or boards. One linear foot is the same as a board foot as long as the board is 12 in wide.

In order to calculate the square footage you measure the length and width of the board, which gives you the linear feet, and then multiply the two numbers together. If what you are measuring is in inches, multiply the length by the width and then divide the answer you get by 144 in. This is because there are 144 inches in one square foot. The answer you get at the end of all this is the square footage.

Then you need to use this figure to work out the linear footage. To do so you divide the square footage by the linear measurement of 12.

If you look research how to work out linear footage on the Internet you may come across several methods that can be used but be warned, some are way more complicated than others. If you will be needing to do this calculation on a regular basis, Ia method that works best for you and continue with that one.
