Calculate Your Linen Size
For those that want to do their own calculations of the hang or drop of a rectangular table it is simple to do. The first thing is to subtract the table length from the linen length and the table width from the linen width, and then divide both differences by two. That means if you have a six (6) foot (30 x 72 in.) rectangular table with a 54 x 120 inch linen, you would do the follow:
1) Subtract 30 from 70 (72-54=24) and 48 from 120 (120-72=48).
2) Divide 24 by 2 (40/2=12) and 48 by 2 (72/2=24)
3) You will have 12 inches widthwise and 24 inches lengthwise will be your hang or drop.
4) This will work providing your table is 30 inches high
