Re: Help with simple square footage problem



Quote:  The square root of 2400 = 48.99 . The square root of 1700 = 41.23 .
That's
48.99 plugs in 41.23 feet so 41.23 / 48.99 = 0.84 feet between plugs.
I think 10.1 inches (approximately) might be closer to what
you are looking for.

No, I was looking for 0.84 feet.
There are a few reasons for that. One reason is that I am maintaining
relationship to the beginning parameters. Another reason is that I can leave
something clever to the landscaper to do. And finally, when I measure a yard
I use a surveyor's tape and there are no inches on a surveyor's tape...

Quote:  I am planting grass plugs. The normal coverage would be to plant 1
plug per square foot. I over ordered so I would have denser coverage.
I have 1700 square feet of planting area. I ordered 2400 plugs. What
would the formula be to calculate how many inches apart the plugs
should be planted so they are evenly spaced?

you are looking for.
2400/1700 = 1.412 plugs/sqft
=> 1/1.412 = 0.708 sqft/plug
=> 144*0.708 = 102 sqinch/plug
=> Sqrt(102) = 10.1 ~ 10 inch separation/plug

Sqrt [ 1700 / 2400 ] * 12" =~ 10.1 in.
