• PPB is the price per board foot ($/bf) • BF is the total number of board feet purchased To calculate the lumber price, multiply the price per board foot by the number of feet purchased. ## How to Calculate Lumber Price? The following example problems outline how to calculate Lumber Price. Example Problem #1: 1. First, determine the price per board foot ($/bf).
1. The price per board foot ($/bf) is given as: 30. 2. Next, determine the total number of board feet purchased. 1. The total number of board feet purchased is provided as: 70. 3. Finally, calculate the Lumber Price using the equation above: LP = PPB * #BF The values given above are inserted into the equation below: LP = 30 * 70 = 2,100.00 ($)

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

price per board foot (\$/bf) = 140

total number of board feet purchased = 50
