The answer will depend on the width of the decking boards.

Lineal metres = Square metres/Width of the boards.

A square metre is a unit of area. A linear metre is a unit of distance. The two units are therefore incompatible.

This question cannot be answered sensibly. A square metre is a measure of area, with dimensions [L2]. A [lineal] metre is a measure of distance, with dimensions [L]. The two measure different things and basic dimensional analysis teaches that you cannot convert between measures with different dimensions such as these without additional information.

You don't. Square feet is a measure of area and lineal foot is a measure of length Your question is like asking how do you convert Gallons to Inches

I don't understand converting an area to a lineal measurement. Do you mean the length of the side of a square of that area? This would be 201.168 meters.

Lineal metres = Square metre/Width of the carpet.

Square meters cannot be converted into linear meters; square meters are units of are and linear meters are units of length.

This is an invalid conversion: square meters is a measure of area and meters is a measure of length or distance.

No. You cannot compare two and one dimensional objects! Square meters are a measurement of area (2 dimensions) Lineal meters area one dimensional distance measurement.

The units cannot be exchanged or converted

Invalid conversion: square meters is a measure of area and linear meters is a measure of length or distance.
