math challenged ( kinda long)
We are p lanningon redoing our living room over the summer a little at a time. So we got the plywood for the floor last month. The people that built this house used,old plywood for flooring and ran it the wrong way so the floor is sagging. Anyway we figured on getting stuff month to month. My MIL just informed me that she can get a brand new still in the plastice carpet, 14'x20' for around 40 bucks. she works at a mod plant and this is considered a piece. Of course I jumped on that but now I have two problems. No where to store it until the floor is down and I can't for the life of me figure out how much padding we need. I must have been absent that day in school cause I am drawing a blank. Can anyone help me? I need the square foot or yard. TIA

You would measure the length and width of the room.
Take length x width= total square feet
The carpet is 14x20 so that is 280 sq feet. Do you know what size rolls the pad comes in?
There are 9 sq feet in a yard so 280/9=31.11 sq yards

Thanks for info. We have found several different ways to buy the padding but it is on hold for now. Two reasons why.........My dh was laid off last week so we figured we had awhile to do this.
guess who got called back for this week coming? And my MIL wasn't able to find the carpet. she has no idea where the guy put it at the plant and then she got laid off. We had already started the floor so we went ahead and replaced the plywood. As you can see it's 5:30 a.m. We started at 9:30 and and got done around 6. What a long day. I have been up all night with pain in my hips and shpulders so bad I can't lay and can only sit for a little bit. I don't think I will be doing much today.lol. I see we have a fresh batch of snow too. Yippee. I am really sick of snow and cold weather. Stupid groundhog anyway.

I just figure it the easy way...either you need padding for the whole room..or you just need padding for the whole carpet.
