    So math was never my strong point, can someone answer a mathematical question for me and explain how they figured it out?
    If I buy a roll of vinyl that is 30"x150' and I pay $327 for it.
    What is my cost of that vinyl per linear foot?

    $327 divided by 150

    Errr
    $2.18 a linear foot
    $327.00/150ft = 2.18 running foot.

    Did you mean square ft?

    30" / 12 = 2.5 sqft
    2.5 x 150 = 375
    $327 / 375 = .872 sqft

    Just to be clear,
    A square foot represents an area equivalent to 12" x 12".
    A linear foot is 12" off the roll, whatever the width is.

    12" X 150 ft=150 sq ft. now you got a roll that is 24" x 150, just double the 150 sq ft so now you have 300 sq ft. got 36" X 150, 3 X the 150=450 sq ft. LINEAR FEET pricing is mostly how you buy cloth cause it std size is 54" tall. same with floor carpet, its a set length of material.

    We use this formula for figuring square feet of roll goods -

    inches in width x yards long divided by 4 = square feet.

    30x50=1500
    1500/4= 375
