Cherry lumber calculation

I have a 15'X10' room and would like to know how many (3/4")X5"X48" it would take to cover the floor of the room. Cherry is $24.99 a piece. Also I would like to know the cost of the lumber. Can someone please help me?

A minimum of 90 pc or $2249.10. But you will surely have some % of waste. Don't like math, or just checking your figures?

With 4' long pieces you sure will have a lot of seams.

Unless this is tongue and groove, be prepared for a lot of nail hole repairs. How do you plan on fastening this to the floor? How do you plan to deal with the inevitable cracks between the boards when the room expands and contracts?
