How to convert a linear meter to a square meter?
You need to multiply the length in linear meters by the width of the linear meter.
A square meter is determined by the formula:
S = L * W
S is the area in square meters (sqm, m2);
L is the length in linear meters (lin. m, lm);
W is the width of a linear meter (m).
Figure with legend is shown above.
Find the area of the carpet in square meters. The length of the carpet in linear meters is 5 lm, the width of the carpet is 3 m.
S = L * W = 5 * 3 = 15 m2
