Perimeter = the distance around the edge of the field; how much fence it takes to enclose the field. Area = how much land-surface the field covers, i.e. how many corn-stalks can be planted on it. ================================= Perimeter: the distance around the edge of the floor in the room. Area: how much carpet it takes to cover the floor.

That is the area. The perimeter is the measure around something, and it is relevant, among other things, to know how much fencing you need for a lot.

To know how much square feet this will cover, We need the info about what the perimeter of the carpet is first, otherwise this question cannot be answered. (If you do not have a defined perimeter, equal length and width would make the most area.)

The "area" of any shape means how much space it covers on the floor, table, wall, land, paper, etc. It takes more grass seed to plant a lawn on more land 'area', and less paint to cover a wall with less 'area'. When you buy carpet, they ask you the 'area' of the floor you need to cover.

Some areas will not be carpeted. For example, underneath kitchen units or in the bathroom. These will contribute to the floor area but not the carpet area. On the other hand, the risers of steps may well be carpeted but will not contribute to the floor area.

You will need at least 32 square yards of carpet to cover that area.

It is area, not perimeter!

The carpet area is the area of floor which is, or is to be, carpeted.

A fitted carpet means that the carpet covers the whole of the floor area. An underlay may be laid first and the carpet laid on top. The carpet is not attached to the floor.

The floor's area is: 1,296 square feet.

The area of the floor is 1296 square feet.
