Correct me if I’m wrong, but I can’t for the life of me figure out how you got those figures. I could be missing something, but you’re calculating the area of each room? So for example the three rectangular rooms would be

Dave, I see it now. I misunderstood your scale and assumed that the 6.2=6.2 feet (which is 74.4 inches) and not 62 inches. So indeed your math is correct, sorry for the mix up mate!

Dave, can't we talk curtain fabric or something other than math? I didn't get the 'math' gene.

bottom left : 6.2 * 4.95 = 30.69 !=25

bottom right: 4.2 * 7.05 = 29.61 !=24

middle : 2.7 * 9.9 = 26.73 !=22

It seems that they are all off by about 5, so I’m guessing that you're accounting for something I’ve missed?

Nick--OK, maybe I screwed up, but here's what I did.. The graph is a 1/10 scale. So, 6.2=62 inches.

So, 6.2 * 4.95 = 30.69

Then 30.69 * 10 to bring to scale=306.9 square inches.

Then 306.9 / 12 to arrive at square feet, 25.575.

I'd love to know if that method is wrong. Thanks for taking the time to look at it!!
