    say a bag costs $25.00 .. it covers 10,000 sqr ft ... then its $25 per 10k sqr ft
    or, $2.5 for 1k sqr ft ... just move the decimal..

    divide cost by sqr ft covered. (in thousands) .. a $16 bag that covers 15k
    ... 16/15 = $10.67 per 1000 sqr ft

    you can tell its this math operation by the wording when you say "cost PER 1000 sqr ft" ...so ... "$ per 1000 sqr ft" ..so .. $/sqr ft in thousands ...

    whenever you say "per" .. it means the thing you said before "per" , divided by the thing you said after :)
