For the wall 64ft. x 9ft. = 576sq.ft.

For each end 24ft x 9ft./2 = 108sq.ft.

Total amount needed is 576 + 108 + 108 = 792sq.ft.

Now you're not going to side over your windows or doors, but you're going to have some waste material. So don't calculate the window and door areas and subtract it from the figure above. You'll probably need that extra siding. I would go as far as ordering a few extra feet just in case you made a mistake.
