I have a lumber product at a fixed size of 21mm x 145mm x 1200mm and I can fit approximately 924.37 linear feet of this per cubic meter in a container. Weight requirements cannot exceed 18 cubic meters per container. I have two containers. What is the cost per square meter (total cost also) if the price is $2,800 per cubic meter. Please let me know if you need any other information. And please advise as how to calculate. I'm bashing my head against the desk!

Do you know there are really 18 m³ of product in each container? If so, you have 36 m³ total x 234 pcs/m³ or 8424 pcs.
Per cubic meter, you have 234 pcs x 1.2 m x 0.145 m, or a total area of 40.72 m². If the cost is $2800/m³, then it is $2800/40.72 m² or $68.77 m².
If you have 36 m³, the total cost is 36 x$2800 = $100800.
The total area is 36 m³ x 40.72 m²/m³, or 1466 m², and you get the same cost per square meter, within rounding.

Thanks John,
My apologies, I worded that incorrectly; I understood that the totals would be the same. In regards to how many linear feet per cubic meter I can fit, I rounded a standard 5/4 x 6 deck board and converted it and your piece count per cubic meter is very close to the measurements I use to price out container shipments and tallies. 234 pieces at approximately 4' long we're looking at 936LF/m3.
I'm not any math whiz whatsoever, but through my conversions I calculated $2.89 per linear foot and multiplied that by 10.76 to get my m2 cost. Pretty close, although I really have no idea how I got to that figure.
Thanks again as I will keep this formula for next time!

Re: Cubic Meters to Square Meters
i have a pool which is 1.8 meters deep and 10 meters long and 6 meters wide. which would make it 108 cubic meters. Considering the size of the the walls of the pools i need to know the amount of square meters this pool covers. For refinishining I have a price of X Dollars per square meter. can you help with the computations.
