1 square foot is created by 3 feet of 4 inch wide boards.

This can be seen by laying 3 boards each a foot long next to each other.

It follows that:

32 * 3 = 96 linear feet of board to cover 32 square feet of surface.

The formula:

(12/#widthOfBoardInInches#) * #squareFeetToCover# = #linearFeetNeeded#

LINEAL is actually an incorrect term for measurement - it refers to ancestry or heredity. The correct term is LINEAR and one (1) linear foot equals 12". To convert linear feet to square feet depends on the width you are measuring, i.e., 100 linear feet x 1 foot wide equals 100 square feet; 100 linear feet x 6" wide equals 50 square feet and so on.

Convert the lineal feet to lineal metres, then multiply the width in metres, giving the square dimension in metres.Eg: You have a combined length of timbers totalling 300 feet and each length is 10" wide.In metric, that would be, 100 metres total length with a width of .25m. Multiply 100 by .25, givng the answer of 25 square metres.

If I want to cover 2500 square feet how much lineal feet do I need?

This can not be answered without more information. You need to know the width of the item being measured by length (which is what lineal foot refers to). If it is a roll of carpet 25 feet wide, you would need 100 lineal feet to cover 2500 sqare feet. If it is a 2.5 foot counter top, you would need 1000 lineal feet. Divide 2500 by the width in feet of the material being measured and you will get the number of lineal feet required.
