    Figure number of curtains needed. six windows requiring 2 curtains each. Curtain material is on a roll i meter wide. Curtains are to be 1 meter wide. Lucky Natalie!!! Number of curtains are to be 12 each and they are to be 120 centimeter long. 12 curtains 120 centimeter long gives length of 1,440 centimeters or 14.4 meters of material off the roll.

    Do I multiply 14.4 by 6 to get the answer?

    No you just use 14.4 meters of the material, remember the material is 1 meter wide on the roll. So unroll 14.4 meters from the roll and cut it every 120 cm, should give you the 12 curtains you need.

    That should be enough to make the required curtains
