Linear meters would be just the total length, as if each piece was placed end to end.

6500 * 2 = 13000 linear meters

You can find the cost per linear meter from the cost per cubic meter, by multiplying by the width and height of the board. (have to convert millimeter to meter first)

900 * (0.019 * 0.090) = $1.539 per linear meter

Now we can verify the cost using both cost per cubic meter and cost per linear meter, see if they come out the same.

cost per cubic meter method: 6500 * (2 * 0.090 * 0.019) = 11.115 cubic meters 11.115 * 900 = $10003.50 total cost

cost per linear meter method: 6500 * 1.539 = $10003.50 total cost

Both came out the same so we know the calculations were correct.
