science space and astronomy# How do you find the width of a room?

Last Updated: 14th January, 2020

**room**, you will firstneed to measure the length and then the

**width**of the

**room**. Then multiply the length and

**width**. Length x

**Width**= Area. So, if your

**room**measures 11 feet widex 15 feet long, your total area will be 165 squarefeet.

Moreover, what comes first width or length?

The Graphics' industry standard is**width** by height (**width** x height). Meaning that whenyou write your measurements, you write them from your point ofview, beginning with the **width**.

how do measure area? To find the **area** of a rectangle multiply itsheight by its width. For a square you only need to find the lengthof one of the sides (as each side is the same length) and thenmultiply this by itself to find the **area**.

Regarding this, how are room dimensions listed?

For example, if the length of a **room** is 18 feet,and its width is 8 feet, the **room** is 144 square feet (18feet in length times 8 feet in width). Divide the square footagemeasurement by 9. Because 1 yard is 3 feet long, a square yard is 3feet by 3 feet, or 9 square feet.

How do you measure a room for walls?

**Measure** the width and height of the**wall**. To **calculate** the area of a **wall**, use thestandard (Width) x (Height) = Area formula. Using a**measuring** tape, **measure** the width and height of the**wall**. Since **walls** can be tall, you might want to aska friend or neighbor for help holding the **measuring**tape.
