Enter the length of the wood beam (ft) and the cost per foot of wood ($/ft) into the Wood Beam Cost Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Wood Beam Cost. ## Wood Beam Cost Formula The following formula is used to calculate the Wood Beam Cost. WBC = LW * CPF • Where WBC is the Wood Beam Cost ($)
• LW is the length of the wood beam (ft)
• CPF is the cost per foot of wood ($/ft) ## How to Calculate Wood Beam Cost? The following example problems outline how to calculate Wood Beam Cost. Example Problem #1: 1. First, determine the length of wood beam (ft). The length of wood beam (ft) is given as 40. 2. Next, determine the cost per foot of wood ($/ft). The cost per foot of wood ($/ft) is provided as 30.50. 3. Finally, calculate the Wood Beam Cost using the equation above: WBC = LW * CPF The values given above are inserted into the equation below: WBC = 40 * 30.5 = 1220 ($)

Example Problem #2:

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

length of wood beam (ft) = 60

cost per foot of wood ($/ft) = 70 Entering these values and solving gives: WBC = LW * CPF = 4200 ($)
