Leave the measurements in feet -
8 1/3 x 20 1/12 = 25/3 x 241/12 = 6025/36 = 167 13/36 sq ft,
precisely. In decimal form that would be 167.36111111111...

If you're measuring for patterned carpeting remember to allow
extra for matching the pattern!!

You would take the length x width to get the square footage
(say, to measure for carpeting).

Your length would be 20.083 x 8.33 (approximately) for square
footage of 100.65 square feet.

Hope this helps!

## Answer

1) Convert the measurements to inches only. 2) Multiply width x
length 3) Divide by 144 to get feet.

## Answer

You must begin by first converting your measurements all to
feet. So first off, you already know you have 8 ft so you have to
convert your 4inches to feet by dividing by 12. So 4/12 equals .3
feet. This gives you 8.3 feet wide. Next, you already know the 20
feet so you do the same as before. So 1/12 equals approximately
0.083. So you end up with 8.3feet x 20.083 and you get the answer
160.69 square feet.

"Once again I apologize since there is no "click here to answer"
link available to me, so I feel like I'm highjacking a good answer.
But my advice, in addition to the above, would be to simply round
up to the nearest foot to get the square foot quantity, and then
add an appropriate amount for waste depending upon the product and
application."

Imperial = Convert to inches (100 x 241 =24,100 ) divide by 144 (
sq ft ie 12" x 12" = 144)
Answer = 167.36 sq ft
Imperial to Metric Multiply the inches by 2.5 ( 250 x 602.5 cm's =
150625.00 ) now divide by 10000 (1mtr sq = 100cm x 100 cm)
Answer = 15.06 sq mtr.
