# Lineal Metre Factor Calculator

This calculator can be used to calculate the lineal metre factor for a board with a certain width. The lineal metre factor can be used to calculate the lineal metres of boards needed to cover an area.

To get the lineal metre factor for a board you need to know the exposed face value of a board in millimetres.

### Example on how to use the lineal metre factor (lmf) The exposed face value for this board = 132mm
Enter 132 in the calculator.
The result: lineal metre factor for this board = 7.576

Next you need to calculate the square metres of the wall you need to cover.
Wall length = 3.6 metres
Wall height = 2.4metres
Square metres of wall = 2 .4* 3.6 = 8.64sq metres

The multiply the square metre amount of the wall by the lineal metre factor of the board with 132 mm exposed face.
8.64 * 7.576 = 65.4566

To cover the wall you will need 65.4566 lineal metres of this board.
