There is actually 154 sq. ft. in the room.

If you are carpeting the room, you would need to buy a piece of carpet that is 12 foot wide by 14 feet 3 inches (171.6 square feet) in order to lay it in a room that is 11 feet wide by 14 feet long. The extra 3 inches is to square the carpet in the room. You would have a piece of waste 11 inches wide by 14 feet 3 inches long. T in the room. You will be charged for 19.6 square yards of carpet

204 sq/ft not allowing for any waste. Since carpet is most generally only available in 12 or 15 foot widths, you will need 233 sq ft if it comes in 15' widths and 249 if it comes in 12' wide.

Area of room 1 = 12*6 = 72 square feet

Area of room 2 = 10*8 = 80 square feet

Total area = 72 + 80 = 152 sq feet.
