    How to measure a linear foot?

    I was at the home depot the other day looking at counter tops and the pricing is by the linear foot. How would I measure my current countertop to estimate the total linear footage?

    If you have a top that is going between two walls that are 12 feet apart, you would have 12 linear feet of top.

    If it is L shaped, you go to the corner of the 45 degree angle with both measurements.

    It's a running foot, if the sidewalk is 40 feet long that is 40 linear feet.

    It's real simple:

    You take the width of the counter and square it, then multiply it by the length squared. Take the square root of that number and then divide by the width of your counter to arrive at the linear footage.

    You measure the longest length. If you have an "L" shape you measure the back of it.

    You pay for the cut off material.

    If you have angles longest length.
