If I am trying to buy (10) boards that measure 1”x4”x10ft how many board feet is that for all 10 boards?

- DWoodhead

((1×4 x 10) / 144) x 10 = 33.33 bft

- Ron Aylor

This is not correct.

((1×4 x 120) / 144) x 10 = 33.33 bft is correct. Or ((1×4 x 10) / 12) x 10 = 33.33 bft
Or better yet:
Length (1200) x width (4) x thickness (1), all in inches, divided by 144.
