    I'd like a hint. I have no idea but i'll guess 2 meters, if it has something to do with carpet it might be larger?
    Heh. Larger.

    Well thats just plain silly! There must be some logic here somewhere, so i'll guess a broadloom meter is 10 meters. Thats logical because they just multiplied it by 10 and its a metric system.

    Note, Broadloom was around before the metric system was implemented.

    I think if one is guessing, the guess would be better in imperial. Will make it a little easier.

    Yassss, winner!!!!!!

    A standard broadloom metre is 12 feet or 3.66 metres by 1 metre.

    Apols, I should have said standard broadloom but it didn't really make any difference.

    Most carpet comes 12 foot wide. New sizes come in larger widths but aren't as common.
