Depends on the size of the sheets of plywood.

Assuming the plywood comes in 4' by 8' sheets you would need 6 sheets to cover a 12' by 16' area.

The answer will depend on the size of the plywood sheet!

That depends entirely on the size of the sheets !

A sheet of plywood is 4' x 8'. It would take 2 sheets long (16'), and 4 sheets wide (16'), for a total of 8 sheets, with some scrap left over. Since you can't buy plywood in other sizes, really, it would take 8 full sheets.

For an 8' ceiling you will need 13 sheets.

In some instances, the plywood could have been the finished wall at one point in time. Future owners may have gone over the plywood with drywall.

Multiply the width by the length, for area. So, 16x12=192Answer:American measured plywood comes in 4x8 sheets. The floor would be 2 sheets long (2x8=16) and 3 sheets wide (4x3=12) so you would need 3x2=6 sheets.

The answer will depend on the units used for the measurement of the room as well as the size of the plywood sheets. And since you have not bothered to share those crucial bits of information, I cannot provide a more useful answer.

each sheet is 32 square feet, so it would take 7 sheets

There is 32 sq ft in a 4 by 8 sheet of plywood. You would need at least 21 sheets to cover the roof.

If a 412 pitch means a one third pitch then 20% needs to be added on to the area to be covered. So, for a 40ft x 60ft building, the total area to be covered is 40x60 = 2400 sq ft. Adding 20% or 480 sq ft this comes to 2880 sq ft. Next work out the area of the plywood sheets. Lets say 10ft x 5ft or 50 sq ft. So the total number of sheets is total area needed divided by the area of the sheets. That works out to 2880/50 = 57.6 or 58 sheets. A useful table for working out the area of a roof for various pitches is at the web link below.
