You multiply the lenght by the width. Then if you divide by 100, it will give you how many squares of shingles you need.

O.K. time to display my abysmal ignorance. Lets say I have a roof that's 10' by 10'. I multiply 10x10 and get 100'. Now if I divide that by 100 I get 1. What am I doing wrong?

You did it right. a 10' X 10' roof would take 1 square of shingles plus whatever is needed for the roof line and waste. A square of shingles covers 100 square feet.

Ahhhh, there it is then....didn't know one square = 100 square feet. I'm going to have to pay more attention after naptime in my kindergarten class. Many thanks good sir..errr, or madam.
