## Detailed Calculation

To determine the quantity of carpet required for a flooring project, follow these steps:

### 1. Measure the Area to be Carpeted

• Length (L) and Width (W) of the room in meters (or feet).
• Area (A) = Length (L) × Width (W)

### 2. Calculate the Total Carpet Area Required

• Total Area Needed = Area of the room
• Add Wastage: Typically, 5-10% for cutting and fitting.

### 3. Calculate the Quantity of Carpet Rolls Needed

• Roll Width (RW): Standard roll widths are usually 3, 4, or 5 meters.
• Roll Length (RL): Length of the carpet roll.
• Carpet Roll Area = Roll Width (RW) × Roll Length (RL)
• Number of Rolls Needed = Total Area Needed / Carpet Roll Area

### Example Calculation

Room Dimensions:

• Length (L) = 5 meters
• Width (W) = 4 meters

Area Calculation:

• Area (A) = 5 meters × 4 meters = 20 square meters

• Wastage = 10% of 20 square meters = 2 square meters
• Total Area Needed = 20 square meters + 2 square meters = 22 square meters

Carpet Roll Details:

• Roll Width (RW) = 4 meters
• Roll Length (RL) = 10 meters
• Carpet Roll Area = 4 meters × 10 meters = 40 square meters

Number of Rolls Needed:

• Number of Rolls Needed = 22 square meters / 40 square meters = 0.55 rolls
• Since you can't purchase a fraction of a roll, round up to 1 roll.
