Lineal or Linear feet is generally the length of a given width. In flooring it is also know as "running feet" at a given product width. With regard to flooring, a company may sell a product (carpet for instance) at a width of 12 feet only and the price will be set per foot length at 12 feet wide. So if carpet costs $10.00 per lineal foot at 12 feet wide then a 12 foot wide by 10 foot long piece would cost you $100.00. To work out how many linear/lineal feet of carpet you will need take the total square feet you need to cover and divide by 12 (or whatever the standard selling width is) the answer is how many linear feet you will need.
