Determine length (linear) and how wide is it. Multiply the length times the width and this will give you the total area or square footage.

Here is another example: A product is sold by the 20 foot long (linear feet) roll. The specifications state that the product is 2 foot wide x 20 feet long. It is in fact 20 ft. x 2 ft. wide or 40 square feet per roll.
