## Shingle Weight Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Shingle Weight.

**SHW = LS * WS * 2.75**

Variables:

- SHW is the Shingle Weight (lbs)
- LS is the length of the shingle (ft)
- WS is the width of the shingle (ft)

## How to Calculate Shingle Weight?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Shingle Weight.

- First, determine the length of the shingle (ft).
- Next, determine the width of the shingle (ft).
- Next, gather the formula from above = SHW = LS * WS * 2.75.
- Finally, calculate the Shingle Weight.
- 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.

length of the shingle (ft) = 40

width of the shingle (ft) = 20

SHW = LS * WS * 2.75** **= ?
