Enter the total area required to cover all components (in^2) and the fabric width (in) into the Fabric Consumption Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Fabric Consumption.

## Fabric Consumption Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Fabric Consumption.

FC = FA / FW

Variables:

- FC is the Fabric Consumption (in/in^2)
- FA is the total area required to cover all components (in^2)
- FW is the fabric width (in)

To calculate the fabric consumption, divide the total area required to cover all components by the fabric width.

## How to Calculate Fabric Consumption?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Fabric Consumption.

- First, determine the total area required to cover all components (in^2).
- Next, determine the fabric width (in).
- Next, gather the formula from above = FC = FA / FW.
- Finally, calculate the Fabric Consumption.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total area required to cover all components (in^2) = 300

fabric width (in) = 2

FC = FA / FW** **= ?
