2x4 Calculator Formula
Here is the formula behind the 2×4 lumber calculator that determines how many studs you need:
2×4 you need = wall length in feet x 0.75 (16 inch OC) +1
To consider both ends of the wall, we need to add one or more, depending on the corner and openings.

How many 2x4 are in a 24-foot wall?
In a 24-foot wall, there are 20 2×4 studs. You will determine the amount of 2×4 you need by converting the wall length into inches, dividing it by the stud spacing, and adding one more.
For example: 24’10” wall
Convert: 24*12 = 288+10 = 298
Divide: 298/16 = 18.625 rounded to 19 + 1 = 20
