Enter the deck length (ft) and the deck width (ft) into the Decking Area Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Decking Area.

## Decking Area Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Decking Area.

DA = DL * DW

- Where DA is the Decking Area (ft^2)
- Dl is the deck length (ft)
- DW is the deck width (ft)

To calculate the decking area, multiply the deck length by the deck width.

## How to Calculate Decking Area?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Decking Area.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the deck length (ft0.
- The deck length (ft) is given as: 10.

- Next, determine the deck width (ft).
- The deck width (ft) is provided as: 10.

- Finally, calculate the Decking Area using the equation above:

DA = DL * DW

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

DA = 10 * 10 = 100.00 (ft^2)

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

deck length (ft) = 12

deck width (ft) = 12

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator.

DA = DL * DW** = ?**
